I bought this little stool about a year ago for £3, with the intention of re-covering it, maybe in a kind of strip-patchwork of fabric samples from my stash.
The top is worn brown leather. I have no brown leather in the room, but I have got strangely attached to it, in its shiny chocolate-bar kind of way.
I think re-covering it would be a bit all-or-nothing - just putting a fabric cover over the buttoned leather would look lumpy and messy.
Maybe these new Sanderson samples I've just ordered will help me to decide.
Just in case you didn't know, if you're in the UK you can order up to 4 free samples from the Sanderson website
