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?
