Not sure if I've put this in the right place, so please move if necessary!

I have an antique foot stool that was my grandmothers. I'm not sure how old it is I just know she had it for as long as I can remember. It's kind of all I've got from her.

I'm not entirely sure what to do with it as it's a hideous green colour (but it reminds me of her and I loved her dearly) and it also has a piece that is torn.

I'd love some advice or inspiration on how to use it and/or refurbish it (even just how to fix the tear).

Or, maybe it's not salvageable and I should just let go of it.

Here's pics!:
