American Girl Vanity Stool
This DIY Vanity Stool project is meant to go hand in hand with Part 1. Make sure you read that post first, then come here to make the matching American Girl Vanity Stool.
I love how easy and inexpensive this vanity stool was to build. It took me only 30 minutes to complete the stool part of the project! I love quick projects!
1 – 1/2’’ Plywood or MDF @ 4’’ x 5’’ ( I used leftover wood for this project)
1 – 1×2 @ 8 inches
3/4’’ nails ( use 18 gauge nailer)
1 – 1/2’’ (Plywood) @ 4’’ x 5’’ – Seat Top
4 – 1×2 @ 2’’ – Legs
18 Gauge Nailer
Miter Saw or Circular Saw
Attach all four legs by nailing through the top.
American Girl Vanity Stool Cushion
Foam the size of the top of the stool 4″ x 5″
Fabric to wrap over foam
Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
Place the 4″x5″ foam in the middle of the fabric. Put hot glue on the foam and fold the fabric over like you are wrapping a present. Fold the top and the bottom.
Once the top and bottom are hot glued into place, it is time to fold the sides over. Fold them in (just like wrapping a present but without the tape) and glue them into place. Do this on both sides.
Glue the cushion to the top of the stool so it doesn’t move around when your doll is using it!
If you want to add more flare to this project, add a ruffle skirt and glue it on BEFORE you glue on the cushion.
