This stool at Amazon is priced at an unbelievable $19.99. At that price, how about picking up a pair of them to go under a console table or sofa table?! It would be super easy to re-cover the cushion, and you could always paint the legs.
If you decide to purchase and cover up that lovely beigey cushion, send us your before and after pictures!
I have to admit that the base/ legs of this stool look EERILY similar to a stool I paid significantly more for from Source Perrier (now The Source Collection)....
