How to make a Decorative Milk Stool Riser
I started this Decorative Milk Stool Riser like every one of my kits – by sanding each piece. When we cut these on our laser machines, it can leave a layer of residue that affects the finish on them.
Once each piece was sanded, I painted each piece white. Normally I would stain them with a darker brown, but I decided against that with this kit.
Allow the white paint to dry completely, then apply Mod Podge to the top where you want to decoupage your napkin.
Separate the napkin plies and press the patterned ply onto the wet Mod Podge. Cover the surface with a piece of plastic saran wrap and use a rolling pin to smooth out the wrinkles or bubbles.
Once the Mod Podge is dry, remove the excess napkin from the top piece and distress the other pieces very lightly.
Now, go ahead and assemble the decorative milk stool riser. Glue each piece together with Gorilla Super Glue and allow the glue to dry completely.
Lastly, glue the half wood beads onto the cross beams underneath the milk stool riser, and you’re all done!
