I love making useful things out of proper rubbish that would otherwise end up in the garbage or recycling bin. This DIY Footstool is one of those projects.
I used a large empty plastic tub (previously used for Epsom Bath Salts), lots of fabric trimmings, and a William Morris Fabric Remnant to make a functional footstool to match with my living room decor.
Total cost? About £8 for the fabric remnant, everything else was upcycled and would have otherwise been thrown out.
