If you have read Simply Grove for awhile now then you know that though I love DIY’s, I don’t love nor promote difficult DIY’s. I am a simple DIY gal who wants great results without breaking a finger or the bank. Another detail that you may know about me is that I love to repurpose used items. And that is exactly what I have done with this Ikea stool (like this) and faux animal hide (like this) found on eBay. See, you can pretty much get anything that you need for your home from eBay. It really is a one stop shop!
For this project, I simply took the stool apart, traced around the animal hide using the top of the stool, cutting my shape out and attaching it to the stool using super glue. You could also try a glue gun or even velcro tabs, if you didn’t want it to permanently stay.
This little stool is a perfect accent piece for my home. It will work great for extra seating, a place to kick up my feet or just as a pretty detail added to any room.
