Ikea Bekvam step stool chic

Materials: Bekvam stool, oilcloth, primer, paint, staple gun

Description: Step one: Use sugarsoap to remove any grease/stains etc.
Step two: Prime it using two coats
Step three: Paint with two coats of paint (here Dulux brilliant white)
Step four: Trim material to fit top (I’ve used Cath Kidston oilcloth)
Step five: Turn stool upside down and staple into place with a heavy duty staple gun.
