I bought this step stool at $14.99 from Ikea and used it as a stool for a quick eat in the kitchen or as a step for picking out stuff from the upper cabinets. I also use this stool as a small ladder for changing the bulbs, curtains, frames and so on. So I gave it a little upgrade in token of my appreciation.
I applied two coats of red leftover paint first and taped down stripes and applied two coat of black leftover paint. I didn’t apply the finish, because I already have plenty of stripes in my house, so I might change my mind soon. For now, it looks cute in my kitchen.
