  1. Oh how perfect, I'm adding this to my dream book I post every Friday, feel free to come by and see it and grab my I've been featured button.

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

  3. I LOVE IT. I may have to try to make one of these for my DIL when I go to California after the new baby is born.

  4. What if your 12 year old has size 13s and his feet won't even fit on the step stool anymore? WAAAAHHHHHH!!!!

  5. I absolutely love this idea and I actually have a stool we have not used in a while…this would be perfect!

  6. love this! may i ask where you get all your cute polka dot paper? i can never find any cute simple dots like that.

  7. Kelly–

    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!

  8. Oh this is the cutest idea!!! My granddaughter asked my husband if he would make a stool for her and her brother, so they can brush their teeth at the sink…..we are soooo going to include our footprints!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  9. I love this idea, and I have 5 kiddos too. I might just make this for myself for mother's Day.

  10. 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!!

  11. 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!

  12. So cute! I've actually been wanting to do the very same thing with my kids' bathroom stool. Now that I see how cute yours turned out, I'm totally going to do it! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I love, love this idea! I posted about it on my blog. Thank you!

  16. 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!

  17. Just wanted to tell you that I made one (my hubby had to make the actual footstool b/c I couldn't find one anywhere!), and I absolutely{love} it!! Thanks for such a great idea!

  18. I love this stole makeover. I did one for myself of my sons feet print. I am planning on making one for my mother in law for mother's day and wanted too do a tril before I did hers. I am so excited to do hers with all of the grandchildren. She is going to love it!!! This is an awesome site.
