Description
A wood barstool with a red vinyl seat. The seat of the stool is thick foam covered by red vinyl that is stapled to a particle board seat base. The stool has four (4) legs made of lathe-shaped wood, with each leg tapering at the tip and finished with a metal cap. The legs bolt into the underside of the seat, so that the seat does not swivel. 1 foot up from the ground, a circle of metal is attached horizontally to the stool legs, which serves as a foot rest. The metal circle attaches to each leg by one (1) long metal screw that runs through each leg and screws into the metal.
