DIY Vintage Inspired Step Stool
Lately, I've been on the hunt for a little step stool to complete my little stack in the kitchen. I haven't been able to find anything, so I decided to quickly build one.
Such a quick and easy project!
I started with a few pieces of scrap wood that I had out in my garage.
I cut everything down to size, and cut (using a jig saw) a "V" out of the side pieces. You can make your stool any size that works for your space. I knew that I wanted mine to be in the middle of the two that I already had, so I sized it accordingly.
I sanded all of the rough edges, and then glued and screwed everything together, starting with the cross supports to the side pieces/legs.
I then glued and screwed the top piece to the main body of the stool.
Easy as that, I had a vintage inspired stool! And, it is sturdy! I even had my husband stand on it, just to make sure, and sure enough it held him!
All painted and finished! I love the uniqueness of these handmade vintage stools, and I think my newly DIY'd stool fits in perfectly!

Yes I would love to try this project. But I wish you would have shared sizes of boards & lengths/widths for us newbies. Yes I know you used scraps you had on hand but it still would help with confidence so the stool isn't wonky...lol
