I wanted to kick them up a notch so I decided to stencil the tops. The stencil seen below is actually scrapbook paper from Michael’s. I scooped up this sheet about a year ago and finally put it to good use.
Mostly because I knew I would distress the entire stool with my sanding block. Since these stools will be in my kid’s room, I know they’re going to get banged up in no time. Why not help start the process.
