It’s $30 Thursday, and I’ve been saving this little gem for just such an occasion!
You may remember our recent bathroom makeover from a few weeks ago. I got questions about the little numbered step stool in some of the pictures.
Well, here it is in all of it’s numbered glory!
I actually went back and forth for awhile about what exactly to do with this little stool. I wanted something cute that would add a pop of color to the otherwise pretty neutral bathroom. I considered stenciling a little whale, or seashell, or something more kiddie-like, since it really is for Miss L. to stand on when we wash her hands and brush her teeth.
But, in the end, I nixed the little-kiddie ideas and went with something that would always look good, and that I wouldn’t get tired of looking at after a few years…You can’t go wrong with numbers, right?
1. I found this step stool in the garage-sale pile in a friend’s garage. It is quite sturdy and made of wood.
2. I primed and spray painted the stool with several coats of Krylon’s “Catalina Mist.” It’s my new favorite spray-paint color. Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo to make some numbered stencils with vinyl. I used a circular sponge brush and dab, dab, dabbed with American Accent’s Heirloom White.
3. The great thing about using a vinyl stencil is that you get really clean lines when you peel off the vinyl. It gives the stenciled numbers such a professional look, no?
4. Tada! LOVE this little step stool!
Miss L. likes her step stool, but was annoyed that I didn’t put a whale on it. Sorry kid, sometimes your mom’s eye for style is going to outweigh your preferences. Sometimes. 😉
I love the way the little step stool makeover came out! I love it styled with Miss L.’s little slippers and bunny even more!
