Last week I was over at PLAID sharing a fun little project and today I am sharing it here just in case you missed it! It is a fun little Monogrammed Step Stool I made for my son. We just finished potty training and I realized he would need something to help reach the toilet to go and the sink to wash his hands and a fun little step stool was the perfect solution!
First, I headed out to Michaels – a great store to pick up PLAID products – and found this fun little stool. I love the design of it – so cute!
I brought it home and used Hauser Green Light by FolkArt by PLAID and gave it a few good coats. This green is one of my very favorite colors! It is bright and fun and perfect for a little boy. I also used it for this project!
Next I cut out a “Q” with some scrapbook paper I had in my supplies. I used my Silhouette to cut it out but if you don’t have a cutter of any kind just print one out on your computer and trace it onto your paper and cut it out with some scissors – I used to that all the time. It works great!!
Using Gloss Mod Podge, I glued the letter onto the stool. I first applied a coat to the stool …
… and then applied my “Q” and then added a few more coats over the top.
TIP: If you are finding little bubbles in your letter while the Mod Podge is drying, simply take your hair dryer and apply it to the bubble and it will flatten.
I also used the Mod Podge to coat the entire stool and give it a nice little glossy shine.
It turned out perfect and my son loves it!
It is the perfect little step stool to reach those high places. And yes, even I have used it a couple times to reach a few things up high in my pantry. My daughter loves it too so I may be making a fun little pink one in the near future!
I just love it when my kids totally love something that I made for them!! don’t you???
