My 4-year-old daughter started talking about her ‘new room’ before I’d even finished her brother’s. In all fairness, her room is still a nursery, and she’s been ready for a big-girl room for a few years. I whipped out a quick project just so she’d

What household with kids doesn’t have this step stool:
Nothing is safe from spray paint or Mod Podge in my house.

There was probably an easier way, but I just flipped it upside down and traced the step on the backside of my fabric.
I didn’t worry too much about a perfect cut since I planned on edging it with ribbon trim (like I did here and here and, you guessed it, here). Then I placed the cut swatch over the bottom step hoping it would serve as a template for both steps:
But the universe doesn’t work that way…for some reason one step is 1/2″ smaller. After adjusting my second swatch to the right size I followed these steps:
And here’s the cheery new stool in all her polka-dot-ric-rac cuteness:
My daughter is very independent and wanted to be able to reach her clothes and shoes:
But really she’s just using it to scale the wall!
Projects are under way for her room, so check back. This piece was transformed last weekend…can you guess what color?!
