Build A Little Helper Tower To Keep Kids Safe

Back in the good old days (you know when we walked uphill both ways in the snow to school) a kitchen chair would suffice to help out Mom and Dad at the counter. Well I have the scars to prove that the chair method isn't always the safest way to go! But mom and carpenter Ana White had something else in mind…

We've all become quite familiar with Ana's work and as we know all too well, where you are is where your kids will be. Ana needed a functional and safe way for her kids to help out in the garage, laundry room or kitchen and as usual — she took matters into her own hands.

This Little Helper Tower is adjustable for the size of your child and even has a few amendments for those who might be at the top of their class (like an arched entryway!). The piece is beautiful and will save you hundreds of dollars at the store and can be put together in a weekend.

Check out the full tutorial over at Ana White's website and get busy building your own.
