For my upcycle project, I will be making a paper mache stool. This stool will serve as footrest for me to use when I am relaxing while also providing a unique aesthetic. The actual structure will be made of remnant wood material found in my backyard or at a local wood cutting shop (Home Depot, McGuckins). The stool will then be covered with newspapers that will make it look like it is a paper mache stool but with the additional structural support from the wood.
My design loop is actually not a loop, it is a staircase. I chose a staircase because no matter how many steps you have in your design, you are always advancing your progress within the design. In my case with making a paper mache stool, there are six steps; think of the idea, design the structure, acquire the materials, build the structure, test the structure (redesign if needed), and enjoy the structure. Following these steps will make for a successful project and pretty neat stool!
