Leather Jacket Footstool -Recovered footstool.

Use a Leather Jacket to Cover a Worn FootstoolI had a woven footstool that was beginning to come apart. Instead of purchasing expensive reed to re-weave it, I decided to cover it with genuine leather from a secondhand coat I purchased for two bucks! I left the woven part of the stool intact to create stability.
