A New Step Stool

Well I finally finished the stool with the exception of adding rubber to the
steps. Boy was it a job! It was more than I expected, once I removed the
seat cover it was Rust City... It looked as if I was about to tackle an Ant Hill
or a mound of red clay! At one point I thought of throwing in the towel, but
it's hard for me to quit or throw anything away as I've stated before.

I should have worn a mask but I didn't realize so much debris was flying a-
round in the air. I quickly realized my mistake once I started to wheeze and
get dizzy! I had to take a day off from this bad boy.  The work was well worth
it in the end because I'm pleased with the result and it's going to come in very
handy. How? My second oldest daughter is expecting! Yay number 10 is on the
way!!! She can no longer lift Sugamama (grand baby #7) to wash her hair, so
luckily I finished this right on time. Sug can sit and lean back or get on her knees!

I spent less than $6 to complete this! Fabric was $3 and some change, and the
vinyl (to protect fabric from the kiddos) was about $2.66 for a yard. Of course
I didn't use even a half of that. The rubber door mat was a dollar, I've yet to
cut and attach it.

I had to use my cell phone to post these pics because sadly my computer
crashed a few days ago, I don't know if I've lost my photos yet!

I hope you like the stool I sure do...
