Step Stool Re-do

Before: The key to a better before-picture is, take the most unflattering before shot possible.

Bad lighting, unedited, gross background scenes…

This little green stool was from an Amish store out in the boon docks of Fred. It was $4. I keep it in my kitchen to reach stuff– since, for instance, my microwave is on top of the fridge.

After. She was fun. I made the stencil myself using freezer paper. So free project.

Laila actually stepped on the “eat” part when the paint was still wet. I wasn`t happy.  Had to touch it up, it made the simple project a bit more extensive. My fault though, I should have set it up higher…

She brightens up the kitchen quite delightfully.

Girls. Get OUT of the pantry!
