At $4.99 US, IKEA's Marius stool must be one of the least expensive pieces of furniture that the retailer sells. With that in mind check out this project that elevates the lowly stool to new heights, thanks to a chunk of tree stump. The tutorial couldn't be easier. Take the Marius apart and reassemble/attach the legs to the chunk of stump. Okay, it's a little more involved than that, but I'll let Burkatron explain that.
