Footsies

My mom was throwing away a beat up step stool & I of course snagged it up. You know what they say, 
"One mom's trash is another daughter's treasure..."
Then again...maybe I should have let this go to the trash can???
Too late...instead & grabbed the sander & went to work...
I didn't get it perfect, but I think the rough corners give it character.

I planned to paint it white, but at the last second snagged a can of Sparkling Spring BLUE from the shed. The same color I used to make this clock(that hangs in the same bathroom that this stepstool will be used in)

And then I asked my boys to assist me & I dipped their feet in White Paint. 
They looked at me with a look of...
You are going to get in trouble for painting on our feet!!!

And now we have a little personalized step stool in our bathroom...
which Parker actually LOVES to stand on while brushing his teeth! He makes sure he steps on the "BIG" footprints & NOT the LITTLE ones(even though they are almost the same size) He knows which footsies are HIS! ;)

So cute! You should put their names and the date on there too. (You could put it underneath so it doesn't show on top.) Parker is too cute!

Very creative. I love it and can see why the children love it too.

Such a cute idea! Love it and their little feet!

That is a very sweet stool and I absolutely love the foot print idea. It becomes a "bench mark" for their growth as well as a functional piece.

Very cute! My kids would love the footprint idea. I have been working on painting a Pottery Barn Kids step stool and it has been a disaster. I might have to try the footprint idea. :D
