Up-Cycle An Old Step Stool
I found this well loved step stool at the thrift store and I had to buy it.  My mom's birthday is coming up and we had run across one of these before when we were together.  I has saw it at a local flea market and bought it.  She saw it and said she needed one too but there wasn't a second one to be found.  I'm going to up-cycle this stool for my mom's birthday!… (14 comments)
