DIY Idea: Make A Unique Stool With An Embroidered Cross-Stitch Detail

We've seen a lot of really funky and unique ideas to dress up plain furniture in our day, but this DIY idea seriously might take the cake. Never in a million years would we have thought to embroider a wooden stool, but this creative crafter from This Little Secret did, and we have to say, we couldn't love it more. Take a peek:

The secret behind this unique furniture? The crafter strategically drilled holes in the top of the stool so that when she wove the yarn through it she was left with a fun cross-stitched pattern. And she painted it this stand-out purple color, which looks amazing. The result is this outstanding stool! We think this might be the perfect project to get together with a few friends and try! For a full tutorial on how you can make it too, just head over to This Little Secret.
