DIY step stool Makeover with Mod-hodgepodge
I needed to achieve something small, the top of my kitchen shelves – so I decorated this DIY step stool in my favorite fabric colors!
I love my new DIY step stool! How did it come about? Mod hodgepodge command center was not designed with me in mind. The nerve, right? You see, in the kitchen, I can’t reach the top boxes (even if I’m 5′ 6″) and I have nowhere to be, a step stool, unless, to dig I want some craft supplies.
Is not going to happen. If you are facing a problem like this, I’m sure you can guess that I always Mod-hodgepodge. I also added to my fabric collection, which had a different colorway of the Joel Dewberry fabric I used in this project.
The instructions for my DIY step stool are below – this is how I solved the problem with the help of my good friend Mod smorgasbord. You’ll be glad to know I’m now reaching the top of the cabinets with ease, and all the world is right again.
