Memory Lane - Kid Step Stool

*If anyone is interested in helping me while on "maternity leave," with guest posting, please contact me for more information! Thank you so much!

Another day another trip down memory lane. I keep seeing this stool when I dare to enter my kids downstairs bathroom and I just fall in love with it every time I see it!


It started out as this...

And after a little sanding and some semi-gloss white spray paint....

I decided to add some more detail to the top. I found some footprints online and traced them onto the stool. I filled them in with some paint I found in the "as-is" bin at Home Depot for $.50! Deal!

Ever try and paint footprints? With all the nice little crevices that come with feet? Yeah, not so easy. I opted for the stencil-look. Hey, I tried! I've said it before...I'm not a painter. Sadly.

Then, I thought I'd use my stencils to outline some fun sayings on the stool. After that was complete, I didn't like all the brush strokes you could see on the words, so I decided to try and sand it down a little. See all that paint that just came right up? What happened?? Ah, well. I covered it all with a nice lacquer to protect it from the little ones feet.

It's working out pretty nice in our downstairs bathroom and the feet have totally grown on me.
