Not sure if you guys have seen these but I love these stools.  Inspired by these I set out to make my own version.  Using thrifted (and ugly) stools, a thrifted sweater, old throw pillows, fabric cut from an old tablecloth and a staple gun I had great new ottomans.  I wanted a more instant gratification project so I decided against crocheting my own cover and used an old sweater instead.  I had to buy a staple gun for this project and now want to use it for more things.  It's definitely my new favorite tool.

Love them!  I like yours much more than the ones you were inspired by.  In fact I thought the finished ones WERE the ones  you were inspired by b/c I didn't notice the link.  Then I scrolled down and thought - wow she really got those!  And then the old brain turned on.  Trying to say yours are way cool!
