Before and After: The Ugly Stool {with mini tutorial}

My hubby {God bless him!} always finds great deals on old  vintage stuff for our home. Honestly this used to really annoy me but lately I've been inspired to create fun stuff out of these sweet finds!

 The idea began with this cool sample I found at my local fabric store. The store was practically giving them away so I bought...a few...and was excited to use them on some home projects. As luck would have it the fabric fit perfectly over the stool cushion.
 Using some upholstery tacks I carefully nailed the fabric over the cushion of the stool.
 Not pretty underneath...

...but so cute when all is said and done! Originally I was going to pain the stool white but I think it looks pretty good as is. What a fun and easy way to spruce up an old piece of furniture : )
