Customize your store-bought furniture with this DIY IKEA Step Stool Upgrade. This project takes a step stool made with unfinished wood and turns it into a simple and unique piece using only wood stain and a splash of color. Step stools are handy to keep around the house, especially if you have little ones who can't reach the bathroom sink. The only problem is, most step stools favor function over style. With this craft, you don't have to choose! You can customize your stool any way you like, giving it as much or as little detail as you see fit. 

Estimated Cost$11-$20
