Wow…..this one was fun! This is another great Lula and Georgia dupe! This simple modern DIY stool was such a blast to make. A wood stool like this could be the perfect addition to any space in your home. You can place two stools in front of the fireplace or at foot of your bed. How about a single stool near your bath as a bath stand?

The best part about this stool was the cost! We made this DIY stool for only $35 and it was so simple! I lay out all the dimensions below for you to tackle this DIY. Once all the pieces are cut and drilled slide all the parts onto the 5 wooded dowels. Glue and pin nail the first and last few slats and you are done!
