Hey guys! I know I have been absent from the blogging world for a few weeks now, but I was taking some much needed vacation time with my family! But, I am back and I have so many new projects and recipes to share with you!
Before we left on our vacation, we began working on decorating our master bathroom. It is almost complete and I wanted to give you a sneak peek by showing you this fun, easy stool makeover project!
I have a vanity area on my side of the bathroom and I really wanted a cute stool to sit on while I did my hair and makeup. I found this stool at Garden Ridge for only $39.99. I loved that the legs were already white, but definitely did not love the two-tone look of the wood seat. I also wanted the seat to have a cushion since yes, it does take me quite some time to put on my face lol.

First I cut a piece of foam batting to fit the top of my stool. Most all craft stores sell this stuff for only a few dollars. You can choose how lofty you want it to be.
I used this Gorilla Glue (from Lowes) to glue the foam down to the wood seat. My husband and I swear by this stuff and use it in almost every project we do around the house involving wood!
I then cut some old scrap fabric, left over from the master bedroom curtains, to fit the stool. I used a staple gun to wrap it tightly around the seat.
I folded my corners to make sure there was a tight, smooth crease.
And here is the finished product!
Here is a sneak peek of the bathroom...my new cute stool sitting under the vanity area! I love it so much and I love how it adds another element of texture to the space.
This project could be done in so many ways from a craigslist find to a bright color paint to a fun geometric fabric! Don't worry about screwing this one up...this is definitely a beginners project! And have FUN with it! Remember, just because the store sells an items one way, doesn't mean you can't change it to make it perfect for you!
