I'm on a woodworking spree - first the stools, then the bench (complete but needing a cushion)and now a step stool for the kids.
They had taken to using the new drawer hardware pulls as a step to get things from the upper cabinets and I was not liking that so I found a solution. Something not too bulky or heavy or plastic or kidsy and still fits with the rest of the decor, plus it was virtually free!
It was made entirely from scrap pieces I already had. Again I followed Ana White's plans from her blog for the Ladder Table and it was very easy to put together.
And they love it and so do I.
