And here is the final product at least the wood portion, I left it a little well I don’t know rustic I kinda thought a turtle should be. The stain was a water based one just because as I said my girls will be handling it close to their face when the carry it at least my 4 year old will. It had a smell like chocolate thought that was weird, I am curious to see if anyone else gets that smell when the use it.
The last part of the project or part three “Clone wars” maybe ‘teenage mutant stools” anyway, is to put the foam on it and then the fabric. I am really foggy on how I am going to do that part as it is added on and not part of the plans and I can’t sew which will mean I will improvise. I got some furniture tacks and am going to use them to hold the fabric just not sure how. I think I will glue the foam some how to the stool to keep it from moving and putting stress on the fabric and tacks.
This last picture shows the new step stool with the old one, it was not my most shinning moment, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the little guy and think I will keep it in my shop for when the kids want to sit and chat or put projects on to work higher.
