I am a short person. I know what it’s like not to be able to reach things that I need. I keep a stool in the kitchen in order to reach things on the upper shelves. Otherwise, I’m constantly harassing my husband and begging him to come to my aid.
Recently, the other short person in our house began stealing my stool! He wants to be able to reach things on the counter, brush his teeth in the mirror and turn on and off lights. When I need the stool, he gets very upset. Either Reed needs to grow up quickly (which I do not want) or we needed another stool.
My weekly pilgrimage to Michael’s proved to be quite fruitful because I came across an unfinished pine step stool! Perfect! Since I still had some blue pain left over from my Mommy Timeout Chair, I decided to use it as a base and add a dinosaur to create this Dinosaur Stenciled Stool!
I started with applying three coats of paint and allowing it to dry overnight.
Using my Cameo, I cut out a dinosaur stencil and painted it.
I did the same with his name to personalize the stool. (Now he knows which is his and which is Mommy’s!)
Once you remove the stencil, touch up any areas where the paint bled through.
This Dinosaur Stenciled Stool has scored me major Mom points! Since finishing it, Reed carries it from room to room. He keeps saying, “I yuv my tool!!” (That’s Reed-speak for “I love my stool!”)
