A multi-purpose stool very easy to do

The best thing about this stool, besides how beautiful it is, is that it serves any space in the house. It is great in the kitchen, but also in the living room if you use it as a side table. In addition, in the bathroom it becomes a functional piece that also decorates by itself. You can put it on your balcony or terrace. With a floor above, you can look fantastic.  To make him you will need few things. It’s enough that you feel like having a good time working on this DIY idea.

  • A panel of MDF of 19.5 x 15 cm
  • Acrylic paint of the color you prefer: white, pink stick, gray, etc.
  • 4 x 50 mm flat head brass screws
  • 10 x 10 cm white tiles.
  • Special adhesive for tiles
  • Paste for white joints (choose one that can be dyed with pigments)
  • Colored pigments for joints.

You will also need some simple tools: a drill, a small foam roller, flat screwdriver, a rubber spatula, a sponge. The first thing to do is paint the MDF panel of the color you prefer. It uses acrylic paint and a small roller of foam. To achieve a good result apply three layers, letting the piece dry between layer and layer. Then mount the stool.

To do this you will have to make four holes in the edges of the side panels to attach them to the square board that acts as the seat of the stool. Hold the MDF panel, as you can see in the image. You can use a drill if you have one on hand, but most likely you do not need to insert the screws, since the wood is soft and will not cost much to screw the pieces.

Glue the tiles

Now you have to glue the tiles on the top of the stool. You will need exactly nine square pieces. There are several systems for gluing them. You can use special adhesive paper (the company Cristal grip sells a system to glue tiles without glue, but it can be difficult to find in Spain, in France they have it in Leroy Merlin). In that case, you will also be served a quality double-sided tape. As you glue the pieces together, go by placing plastic crossbars 2 mm. So that the joints can be made between the tiles and that, they all remain with the same thickness. If you catch them by eye, the result may not be as decorative.
