Ooh La La! Fancy Toile!

I have been looking at vintage wallpaper lately in search of the same exact pattern that was in my Nana's dining area.  In my memory,  it appears to be a faded, reddish, pink with white flowery circles on it.  From what I learned, it could possibly be a geometric floral from either the 1940s or 1950s.  I haven't had any luck finding it yet, but when I came across this toile wallpaper online, it totally reminded me of a small remnant of fabric I recently bought at my local Habitat for Humanity for only 99 cents!

So, what can I do with such a small piece of remnant fabric?  I could make about 2 or 3 pillows.  Instead I swiped my mom's little footstool that was looking a little depressed.

I gave it a new look by simply taking it apart and putting it back together like a puzzle, with a little help from the staple gun I borrowed from my husband's massive tool collection.  This was my first attempt with a staple gun.  I am thrilled to say that I didn't put an eye out, my fingers are intact, and the footstool looks much more cheerful now. 

I have just enough fabric leftover to make a small pillow.
