To begin, assemble your IKEA stool. Alternatively, you could use any stool you already have on hand. You can also opt to spray paint the stool's legs gold if you prefer a little bit of glamour. To find out the exact IKEA stool we used for this project, check out our blog post here.
DIY Fuzzy Stool (Without the Outrageously High Price)
There's no reason to spend hundreds of dollars on a trendy designer sheepskin stool. Learn how to make your own DIY faux fur fuzzy stool in a few easy steps! We created this chic fuzzy stool for use under a makeup vanity but we also believe it would look equally adorable in a little girl's room. The white metal stool, faux fur rug and fluffy pillow are all from IKEA which makes this is an incredibly simple IKEA hack.
Next, using fabric glue or a glue gun, attach the pillow to the seat of the stool. Be sure the pillow is securely in place and allow the glue to dry before moving on to the next step. Note: the pillow is for extra cushioning and comfort but is not entirely necessary.
Next, place the stool upside down (as shown above) on the faux fur rug. Fold over the outer edges of the rug, and then fold each end towards the center of the stool.
Anchor the rug in place using large safety pins. You can also use an upholstery stapler if you have one on hand.
Voila, that's it! A trendy statement piece at the fraction of the price.
