Like many people, I have some items in my home that weren’t built to quite the quality that I would ideally have. In this case, we picked up a couple stools that were very cheap. About a year after the stools were bought, the seat of the stool collapsed.

Instead of tossing them in the trash and buying new ones, I wanted to show how easily you can often repair something like this. Now these stools swill last a very long time, if the cats don’t completely destroy them.
