Today is the day! I have been so excited to share this DIY wooden step stool tutorial with you, but it took me a long time to put it together. Don’t worry, the project REALLY isn’t that complicated, but writing up tutorials, creating drawing and videos just takes a while and I wanted to do it right for y’all:
We’ve been using these wooden step stools in our girls’ recently renovated bathroom for a few months now and they are PERFECT. They are functional and help our little kiddos reach the sink to brush their teeth, wash their hands, etc. We chose to make ours just tall enough so that they easily slide under the floating vanity. They are super functional and even more stylish. I love the modern look of them and y’all know how I feel about all things concrete! The white concrete tops are MY JAM and it’s such an easy thing to do. Okay, enough talking! On with the wooden step stool tutorial! This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.
