    Too pretty to stand on! Mark, I love your choices of stencils. Where do you
    suggest we purchase interesting stencils like the French bakery one – ebay?

    For anyone who is worried about sturdiness. Simply drill pilot holes and
    use screws instead.

    Every time I watch one of your videos, I am hit with the realization that I
    can actually accomplish diy projects that I stayed away from because I
    thought they would be too complicated. Thank you for always being
    enlightening <3

    lol! ;)

    A Bench! I need one for my garden-hut. That’s a very clever idea!

    Simple Perfection!

    For the past week I have been looking for a tutorial to make a stool for my
    sewing room, and this is perfect! You have great timing, Mark :)

    Again…. another great diy! Where would I purchase “The Big Ass Book of
    Bling”?

    i never knew we could make a stool in no time. I am going to like this
    video right now! :D

    I absolutely love this, Mark! Would love to cut out a design in the
    center. But, just once, could you glue your fingers together or get paint
    on your hands, just to prove to us underlings that you really are human?
    Just…one…time…please?

    Your videos make me so happy!! Can’t wait to make one for my little cook so
    he can reach the counter!!

    Great project… I will soon be making mine. Keep the inspiration rolling!

  16. Sasha Aimey14 June, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    I’m going to upholster mine and maybe do a galaxy fabric :-)

    Hi Mark! I’d like to use this as a bench, could I make it taller or would
    that cause it to warp? I’m thinking if I also lengthen the support it would
    work, what do you think? I’ve been wanting to make a cute bench for my room
    to add some decor and place my bags on, but the other techniques I’ve seen
    are a little too complicated for me. Thanks a MILLION for this
    tutorial!!!!!!

    How sturdy is this? Will i hear a crunch when im standing on it falling to
    my death? Lol its friken sweet tho. Would love this as a bench

    Super cute. Love the vintage style stencils you’ve been using. Makes me
    inspired to add more colorful vintage flair to my kitchen.

    His house must be French.

    Hi, Mark! Awesome video, that’s a great idea! I love it!
    I want to ask you something: what is the name of the song you use when
    materials are presented? It’s from Melody Loops too?
    Thanks for your time! Greetings from Spain!

    How do you clean your stencils?

  24. Danielle Woods14 June, 2014 at 9:17 am

    I’ve been wanting/needing a foot stool for my kitchen. I’m definitely going
    to give this a try.

    Need to build a stool or bench in a hurry? Can’t get to that top shelf in
    the kitchen without crawling on the counter? Build this stool in no time
    and extend the measurements to make a bench. It’s easy! Grab some paint and
    some stencils and decorate it to match your decor!
