Grandma and Grandpa’s latest building project will keep “Monkey” safe while helping in the kitchen. Now that he tried it out and enjoys it, we’ll tweak a couple things and paint it.
Items that have dual or multi purposes are necessary when living in a small space. Foot stools and end tables with storage, hide-a-bed, murphy bed, all those regular type things.
We’ve made some of our own creations when we can’t buy what we need, or if we can’t find the right size piece.
In my perfect world, I would be working with wood nearly every day because it’s my favourite hobby.
This latest piece might look confusing or overbuilt, but it transforms for four different uses.
In the top picture is it as a aid for my dish washing and baking helper. To grow with him it has four height adjustments.
The picture below it’s an adjustable highchair.
It also converts into an extra adult chair for at our table.
Plus, I can adjust it for a step stool when needing to access our high cabinets.
There’s building directions for lots of different styles of the four things mentioned above on Pinterest, but I couldn’t find a multi purpose one. So, with a idea in my head, Mister and I started building this figuring out the arm system as we went.
Do you remember being little and standing on something so you could help in the kitchen?
Do you enjoy making things of any kind?
