A couple coats of chalk paint, some pearl wax and a ribbon and it makes a nice TP holder in the bathroom to fill this awkward space between the toilet and tub.
I bought this medium size footstool at the Salvation Army for $5. Much to my surprise, it had already been recovered three times over the original upholstery!
The base had also been repainted a light blue.
Now it's a dark navy blue and the fabric is a fun geometric!
