  1. Your stool looks great! I’m going to follow what you did for this. What kind of sanding did you do to prepare for staining?

    1. Hi! It comes as raw wood, so I didn’t actually sand at all. If you feel like it needs it, I’d just sand with 220 grit prior to painting.

    We have this one too! I painted it with a high gloss red and it lives in the kids bathroom. Yours looks amazing!

    1. Thanks, Kimberly! I bet it looks awesome in red!

  3. Love this idea! Why are step stools typically so ugly?? Love how yours looks!

  4. YES! I feel like I’m in a transition period with my stuff too, where I’m starting to look around and want to improve things ever so slightly. I feel like I’ve been waiting for “the next/forever house” to get all the things I really want, but maybe I don’t have to wait years and can get some pretty + functional things now 🙂
