So in LA there is one store - ONE - that sells unfinished wood step stools. It's where I bought my nephew's gift 5 years ago and where I bought this. As I did with the name sign for Geffen's room I designed the art on my computer, used carbon paper to transfer it onto the stool and hand painted the rest. Then the clear coat and sanding. And the clear coat and the sanding. And the clear coat and the sanding.
Again, I wanted something clean and contemporary. The possibilities for this project are endless but I am really happy with the finished product. Geffen's cousin, Tali, got a matching step stool with her name in Hebrew and English. One day they will each use them to get their parents liquor out of a high shelf or something - that's just fine with me! (Just don't let my husband read this...)
