ANYWAYS. I found this stool (snort) at a garage sale this summer for FIFTY CENTS. Fifty cents! I grabbed it and ran, throwing money at the lady who was holding the garage sale before she could see how much I wanted it and charge me fifty dollars instead.
Also? To "redo" this stool, I touched up the legs with some glossy white enamel spray paint I had...and then? I was impatient, so I just cut the (CUTE Ikea) fabric around the size of the seat, and then---get this--- duct taped the fabric over the old stool seat for now. Quality internet tutorials everywhere are weeping. I am so, so sorry.

So, there you have it. Laziest makeover ever goes to me. I'm not proud. Well...maybe a little. It still works just fine and I spent verrrry little time making it happen. The seat really could use thicker foam, so I keep telling myself that one day, I will do it RIGHT...staple gun and everything. It makes me feel better about myself. ;) Ha!
Works perfectly as my perch for computer work, and tucks away beside the dresser-turned-credenza for the times when it doesn't need to be used. Thumbs up!
Have you got a lazy DIY story? If you do, I totally want to hear it!
