What will you need: Here is a simple idea to transform a plastic bucket (yes, again!) into a small stool for children. It’s pretty quick to make. You’ll need a clean paint bucket, a piece of plywood (3mm thick), a jigsaw, sandpaper, glue and varnish.

At first cut about 6″ from the bottom of the bucket. Then cut 4 arches around the bucket. It should not be so large. Cut the arches with a jigsaw and then polish the edges.

Cut a circle the same size as the bottom of the bucket, sand and varnish it. Then glue it on the bucket.

And voila, a nice little stool for brushing teeth or catching a candy in the cabinet. Plastic bucket has limited resistance, so the stool works great for small children.

    Thank you ever so much for this post aye!❤️❤️
    Down here in Western Australia my friends always ask where I bought mine from!
    When I tell them I made it- they either think it’s just painted a wooden stool or I’ve done a carpentry course
