Give A Simple IKEA MARIUS Stool The Furry Upgrade Of A Lifetime

Stools are often used all around the home, particularly in living and bedroom spaces. However, perhaps a plain stool isn't quite doing it for you. If you're looking for some stylish stools but don't want to spend a fortune, then look to TikToker @milasdecor who recently showed how upgrading a simple IKEA MARIUS stool can help you create a chic look on a budget. Not only does this work wonders to upgrade the aesthetic of your space into something more luxurious and stylish, but you also don't have to spend a fortune to achieve a more high-end look. What more could you ask for?

Even better, this hack is highly flexible, allowing you to pick the style of cushion that fits with any room in your home. Once finished, you can place this stool in your bedroom, workspace, lounge, kitchen, or even at your vanity for a super comfy morning routine. The list is endless with the amount of options you have, and the choice is entirely up to you. Below, we'll show you how you can create this gorgeous stool for yourself.

Add your cushion to your stool

For this hack, you'll need to purchase an IKEA MARIUS stool for less than $5, some gold spray paint, and a furry cushion of your choice that's big enough to fit over the top of your stool seat. When it comes to the color of the cushion, you can choose one that fits the style of your interior, or you can opt to use one that you already have. Once you have everything you need, simply detach the stool from its legs, then use your gold spray paint — but only on the legs. You should do this outdoors or in an area with plenty of airflow. When your paint has dried, slide your stool seat into the opening of your cushion before screwing the legs back on. Just make sure they legs are nice and tight so your seat is secure — after all, you don't want to go flying off. Not only does it look great, but it's a great way to decorate with stools around your home

When it comes to this hack, the DIY fluffy cushion creates a comfy yet luxurious upgrade that fits well with any interior. Of course, you must ensure that the stuffing stays inside the pillow and that none can get out. Likewise, you also need to ensure that you leave the paint long enough to dry, or you could ruin the overall look. Now, all that's left to do is implement it into your chosen space, and voilà!
