If you're looking for a thrifty, fun and creative way to enhance your furniture collection, the $5 Bucket Stool would make the perfect project. The instructions for making your own little seat are provided by HomeMade Modern in its EP8 and EP8.2 posts. The first describes how to assemble it structurally, while the second makes suggestions for how to embellish it.
All you need is a concrete mix, a 48-inch wooden dowel, a 5 gallon container and the option of copper pipe caps. In the bucket, stir the concrete powder with water. After cutting the piece of timber into three, press each segment into the thick concoction. Once this is dry, remove your $5 Bucket Stool from the tub, sand its edges, and decorate it with paint dip accents.
