TTD DIY: personalized step stools

I know the holidays are over, but I am just now getting around to sharing a little DIY that Santa did this year 😉 A few days before the big event, little elves were busy personalizing these cute and practical stools for the boys.

I had purchased the black IKEA Bekvam stools to start with on a recent trip to Kansas City. They also have white or birch. Before assembling the stools, I used 2″ letter stencils to personalize them with their names, using white chalk paint.

After the initial paint job, I went back in and touched up corners. Once dry, Santa assembled the stools and placed them under the tree. IMG_9950.jpgIMG_9951.jpg

The boys now use the stools in the bathroom and kitchen. Heck, I’ve even used them a time or two to grab something out of reach. Definitely an easy hack to add a little personal touch!
