Little Step

A quick project with my 18 month-old girl. 
She loves seeing everything happening outside our front window (neighbor cats, trash trucks, people walking dogs, etc) and each time she either wanted me to hold her up or she would stand on not-so-stable toys and things to give her an extra few inches. 

We had a day together without big sister (with grandma and grandpa) so we took a trip to Michaels to see what we could find. We scored an unfinished step stool that was broken (just the staples had  come loose on one side), so being the cheap shopper that I am, I asked if I could get it discounted since it was damaged. They gave it to me "as  is" for $2! I was very pleased. We came home and repaired it with some wood glue and an extra nail, sanded, spackled, caulked, primed and painted it. Then distressed it, since it will experience some natural distressing anyways being a toddler's step stool. 

My sanding helper...

This step stool was a fun, small project and it get used so many times a day.
