    This is great! It's got such a personal touch, and you can coordinate it to match any palette.

    I have recently found quite a few cute polka dot papers at my local scrapbook store–even just in the last few weeks. All of the brands were major ones, so you might something similar at a store near you. Good luck! Polka dots are my favorite!

    I love this idea!! I'm going to try to make it this week! I'm just trying to find a plain wooden stool though- any suggestions on where to get one?? Thanks!!

    I would try Target, and the other major chains–Walmart, Kmart, etc. If you any home goods type stores in your area, I would try those as well, and maybe even Hobby Lobby. If you didn't mind if it was new, you could always check Craigslist.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for this great idea! I bought two unfinished stools at Michael's and made them for my mom and mother-in-law. They turned out great and the moms loved them!
