Step Stool

As you know, I built a new bedroom for my nine-year-old and two-year-old to share.  They have been really enjoying it, but the two year old has to step on the drawer handles in order to get into bed (or get a running start)--Haha!  Well, it just so happens that he has a birthday coming up this week, so I am taking this opportunity to build him a step stool to keep next to his bed (which I've been putting off since remodeling his room--I've been a little busy having a baby, putting on Christmas, etc. since then).  :)  So, I started it yesterday, and this is how it's coming along this morning (with the pieces just stacked into place minus the top step):

I'm hoping to get it routed this afternoon or tomorrow.  Then all I'll have left is assembling and painting it.  Hopefully I get it done before his birthday this weekend. I'll try to update photos as I go, so check back in next week to see the final product!

UPDATE:  Today I assembled the stool:

This afternoon, I will fill all the screw holes with wood fill so that I can give it a final sanding and prime tomorrow.

UPDATE:  It's DONE!!!  Yay!  I can't wait to give it to him tomorrow:
