I was looking for a little step stool to replace the plastic stool in the boys’ bathroom and luckily, I didn’t have to look further than my garage! I found the perfect stool for $1 last Summer at a yard sale. I am so ready for yard sale season! Even though I still have several ahemm…projects awaiting me in the garage from last season, it’s fun to find new treasures!
This stool was perfect because it is chunky and super sturdy:
I love it even more because someone hand-made it. 🙂 It is pretty sad looking though, so let’s fix that…
I added a couple of layers of paint, starting with cottage white latex and topping it off with ASCP in Duck Egg blue.
When I was deciding what to put on the top, I thought this play on words was fun. You can see how I transfer my letters here.
A good sanding brings out all the character in this piece.
Most importantly, it’s perfect for these sweet little piggies!
