Be very careful how you stand on that bench. When you stand on the top step right near the outer edge it could have a tendency to tip over. The top step edge should be a at least a couple of inches back for the bottom edge of your supports.You could add some triangular piece on the front of the supports to extend the bottom point out so it is not in line with the top step.Hope you don’t mind the critique.

Thanks for comments guys. This is going in a pre-school so the kids can get to the sink, she was using a really flimsy plastic on, it will sit against the vanity. No problem with the critique jb, its how I learn.
