Which one is your favourite?
I think personally I would go for a washi tape stool, just because I’ve got loads of fantastic washi tape I’m desperate to use. As for Wendy, I think she will end up using wallpaper on her stool, probably Orla Kiely wallpaper to match her wallpapered kitchen bin.

  11. Love this round-up! I have two kid stools that are in need of a re-do although I’d be curious how the wallpaper or washi tape hold up to kids climbing up and wet hands being dripped on them. You’ve given me inspiration though. Visiting from Redo It Yourself party.

    • If you put a or two of varnish on top of the wallpaper or washi tape than it should be able to withstand some wear and tear. Thanks Claire
