How to Make a Little Step Stool

9:46:00 PM


This project began with an old door on the side of the road.


How to make a step stool


Then we made a very cool headboard...

How to make a headboard from an old door.


Next came a chalkboard made from the leftover panel and molding that was cut off during construction of the headboard.


And there is still one piece left.


And today I used it.

I couldn't reach something in my closet and I needed a step stool.

So... I built one.

I cut the leftover pieces of the door to a good size and started screwing them together.


I gave the stool a good sanding and coat of vinegar/steel wool stain to even out the color on the cut sides of the wood.


Next this very heavy duty little stool got a metal number.


and a coat of furniture wax.


This cute little rustic stool is the perfect size for a step up in my closet while not taking up too much room and because it was made from a 200 lb. mahogany door it is solid as a rock!



Money saved, landfill saved, and clothes within reach!

  6. I do love how you use every inch of a piece and make it into something! Nothing wasted! I have a leftover piece that I was eyeing tonight - it needs to be made into a sign. . . maybe I'll get on that tomorrow!
