3. Upholstered footstool
Upholstered footstools can be an elegant and modern addition to any living space. Generally made with a wood base with an upholstered top, these pieces come in antique or vintage styles as well as modern designs.
To upholster a stool, you’ll need staple gun, cotton batting, upholstery foam, spray adhesive and an attractive fabric that complements your room or can be used frequently. Select materials that blend in well with other elements in the room for best results.
Start with a rectangular piece of decorative fabric large enough to cover the entire foot stool. Tack or staple it onto the base on all four sides, stopping 1″ – 2″ away from each leg for decoration.
