This is one of those projects that I’ve been waiting to do for months, searching thrift stores and clearance aisles for just the right candidate for a vanity stool for my bathroom.

Then, I finally spotted several of these ottomans left over from the dorm room decor at Target and it was marked down to only $24.98. It’s exactly what I’ve been waiting for.

So I brought it home, removed the cushioned top from the base, then wrapped it with the fabulous faux Mongolian fur I had left over from the pillows in my master bedroom makeover. (I LOVE this fur!) With just one yard of it, I’ve made 2 pillows, plus covered this ottoman and still have some left over! Click here to get some for yourself!

After covering the top, I sprayed the base with my favorite Krylon gold, and it was done!

It was so much fun to make, I almost wish it had taken longer.

Reminds me a little of this little beauty which costs approximately $1,120 more than my version. (Ilove it when that happens.)

This is the first project in my plan for a little bathroom update. More on that to come! What do you think?

Don’t forget this month’s Pretty PreppyParty is coming up this Thursday! Can’t wait to see your projects!
