Fluffy white Mongolian lamb stools pop up like dandelions in tony dressing rooms and decor magazine spreads, but the prices can be a bit overwhelming for the rest of us. But Nadia, the Paris-dwelling blogger behind Preciously Me, came up with a way to get the look on her own with just an IKEA stool and a fluffy pillow.

That’s quite the upgrade, no? Nadia started with an IKEA Marius stool (which seems to be available in black, white, and blue on the U.S. site, but in Europe can also be had in pink and turquoise). She added upholstery foam to make it comfortable and the curly fur from a Mongolian lamb pillow, and no one would guess the final product started life as a $6 stool from IKEA.
