We’ve see the IKEA BEKVÄM stool in every room of the house, but Kylie shares a hack that I have never seen before. With a few modifications (and nice new coat of paint), see what Kylie now uses it for in her kitchen these days, and the problem it solves…

As you can see, the stool got an extra story with just a few pieces of wood and some screws. Now her daughter Matilda can get in on all the action, without asking to be held. She can “help” with the cooking, which she loves to do, or just bang some pots and tupperware around.

If you want to make a similar activity tower for your toddler head over to Kylie’s blog, In the Hollow Heart, for the full directions and more photos. (She even tells you which aisle the BEKVÄM is located in the store!)

Thanks Kylie!
