This funny little stool was in my mom's bedroom since I can remember.
She told me it was a "Spanish Labor Stool." Apparently, the purpose of this seat was for women in labor to sit on it and grab onto the side handles to get through the pain of contractions.
I'm not sure where she heard this; Google knew nothing of the Spanish Labor Stool.
She was getting rid of it and I snatched it up.
So now, questions: should I use this fabric I had lying around to recover the seat? Would you paint the wood? Do I need new nailheads? Or should I leave this little guy alone (keep in mind that that is not leather....it is ugly, ahem, faux leather!)
p.s. sorry about the craptastic pictures.
