35. Step Stool
I have to share this step stool make over even though I can't honestly claim the credit for it. This is my husband's creation made from an Ikea step stool worth $14.99. It shows what you can do with something plain and cheap if you have a little time and creativity.
Here's the stool before it was painted. Actually, this is a new one. Our one had been left outside and was watermarked and looking pretty horrible.
I love the little circles of tin foil that he's used for the eyes of the skulls. He glued everything down and then when it was dry he gave it a couple of coats of clear varnish.
Using decoupage is one of the quickest and easiest ways to transform a plain piece of furniture and you can tailor it to whatever your taste is. It's very budget friendly too.
