I has this $4.99 wood step stool from Ikea just collecting dust in our sunroom, when I realized I could make it fab to use in my Craft Room with a little liquid starch + fabric. Here's how I made it customized with barely any effort:
- I flipped it upside down and traced the top step onto a piece of paper for my pattern & used a ruler to measure out the edges of the lower step.
- Cut out the pieces from some scraps of a fave dot fabric and starched 'em on.
Yeah, that's it. It literally took minutes and no painting, priming or gluing to give it some flair. Even better, if I want to switch things up with a new look, there's no big production with doing that either. Just peel off the fabric & trace the shapes onto a new fabric. I can even wash & toss the dot fabric back in my scrap bin so nothing gets wasted.
Now this cute little guy has a new lease on life & is seeing daily use in my Craft Room:
Thanks to my crafting BFF: Liquid Starch!
