The Minimal Leather Stool Cover is the first DIY project in Design Milk's newly launched Make It Modern column. Curated by Meg Kemner, she has decided to ease devoted readers into crafty home improvements with a fun and simple project that won't chip anyone's nail polish. This cover is a great way to revamp an old or inexpensive stool almost instantly.
In addition to the piece of furniture itself, the Minimal Leather Stool Cover DIY project requires a section of leather (or equally heavy material), copper piping cord or leather string and a few odd tools to make the steps easier. Once those items are obtained, Kemner walks people through a step-by-step guide that results in a chic and professional-looking surface that can easily double as a side table for living rooms.
