Bekvam steps up

A simple tweak from Malin makes a huge difference to the Bekvam step stool.

Just a coat of paint and some gorgeous wall paper for a fresh new look. Love it.

See more of the wallpapered step stool. Also check out the play kitchen.

    This is adorable. I have this stool, but it belongs to my cat. She likes to sit on it to look out the back door onto the deck. Hopefully, she won’t mind if I spruce it up with some paint and wallpaper!

    I love it. Is that vinyl wallpaper? Many years ago my mother put up some vinyl that was slightly textured. It was darned ugly, but I imagine that the same texture would work very well as a pseudo-nonslip surface covering in this application.

    I like it. I could do that with mine one day, although I have to say, at the moment I like the natural wood look.
