Cool Idea: A Paint Can Stool

I just noticed this paint can stool in a home on Light Locations, and am completely smitten. Not only is this DIY furniture a great way to repurpose an old paint can (although you know you can recycle them), but it's also just downright cute. I love how this one was upholstered with vintage-looking fabric; it's like a really artsy mushroom. It's a great way to stock up on spare seating or side tables without spending much (or any) money. The top could even be upholstered with the fabric from an old t-shirt or sweater. You definitely need a gallon can to make a substantial seat. If you don't have one, ask your local paint shop or hardware store if they have any leftovers.
