My Vintage Step Stool

Submitted by takahler on Wed, 10/05/2011 - 20:31

Here is my step stool that I've wanted to make for quite some time, but didn't think I'd need it....until the other day when I couldn't reach something in my garage. This will give me just enough height to reach items in my taller cupboards in my kitchen as well. I think it turned out pretty cute. I cut out a stencil design with my Cricut and used black acrylic paint with a dry brush.

Tomorrow I will give it a light coat of poly just to protect my stencil work mainly.

I used 2x2's intead of 1x2s because I had lots of scraps of those lying around from other projects I've made off of Ana's website!
