A quick re-upholstery, no sew...

Hello Lovelies, 
I have this stool, a nice little one, with some nice fabric.
Then I got a little confused and applied a fake cow hide like fabric.
That`s where my cats started to love this little stool.
I clearly understand them, it was a nice, warm and soft fabric.
So, about an hour ago I decided that this stool is mine 
and my little ones have enough room to sleep and shouldn`t go 
on our furniture!
(They don`t besides this stool)

You see all the cat hair?

So I removed the fabric and decided to re upholster it.

I let my cats keep the fabric!
Look at his sleepy, grumpy face;)

A nice b&w striped fabric would look very nice on it.
So I got my staple gun and applied the fabric by folding the corners around.

Almost done...

10 minutes later I `ve got this.

Here it is in my bedroom, at my reading nook.

Looks good right?

I think you can`t go wrong with b&w stripes.
I love how it turned out, 
(maybe I have to steam the right side, looks a little wrinkled... )
Let`s see if my cats like them, without their favorite fabric;)

So what do you think? 
Like `em as much as I do?

Wow, I can't believe what a quick and easy project that was. The stool is adorable and so is the whole room. Just found your blog and can't wait to look around more, you have great style.
