Reader DIY: Mongolian Lamb Stool

I love the look of benches, stools and chairs upholstered in fluffy sheepskin. They look really great as small accent pieces in a living room or a bedroom.

Reader Nadia used the simplest IKEA stool and a Mongolian lambskin pillow cover (this one would work really well!) to make a gorgeous little stool for her home.


I love the pink legs of her IKEA stool (and how about that wallpaper?)! For the full, very easy how-to, check out Nadia's post here.



If you have a project you'd like to share on LGN, please email me here. Thanks!

Looks nice and glam—but I had to laugh, because my first thought was my terrier would claim it as a dogbed!

Chair and cushion both are looks nice and what a color combination. Cushion style is very beautiful. I have searched may online furniture store but I did not see anywhere that cushion.

Love all these examples...and that little stool! I used an ikea sheepskin to cover my piano bench, but not convinced I love the red legs yet. This is what I was asking about the Safety Red for :)

Ok, so the stool is cute but the wall paper is little girl perfection. Care to share the source or designer?

Thanks for sharing this Jenny. I am most inspired when someone takes a piece and transforms it into something else. It helps me see the entire world in a different way.

Adorable! I love the look of lamb's wool whether on furniture or the floor - but not so keen about furniture with animal legs. Thanks for sharing this idea!

I love sheepskin throws as accents (I'm staring at a couple in my own home right now), which makes this my new favorite DIY. Thank you for sharing!

Ikea has really reasonable priced flokati rugs that I have used for the same. I covered a cube footstool, although I did have to use a little creative sewing to cover it all.

Love these. I want the chair. It would quickly become my favorite seat.

Love the stool, but I cannot quit staring at that wallpaper. I'd love to know who makes it! So gorgeous.

Tibi said...

I second that, could wallpaper source be provided? Thanks!!

Amberly said...

Oh boy I am so inspired by this post! Such a great DIY! This is definitely going at the top of my list!

Wallpaper update for those who, like me, are completely obsessed! So, I don't really know her... but Nadia is amazing. I asked for the info, and she personally emailed me within about 15 minutes! Girl's got it together AND has great taste. Here it is: The wallpaper is "Indira" by Clarke & Clarke and "Damson" is the color in Nadia's photo. Here's the link:

Nadia also clued me in on a post she wrote about the wallpaper...Eye. Candy.
