A reader sent us a link to this Unclutterer post about Pottery Barn’s solution for kids that need a little help reaching the sink. While I’m not sure that I’d shell out for the Pottery Barn version, this looks like a first-class idea for a home project — especially if you’ve been thinking about updating that vanity cabinet anyway.

(Thanks, Jet!)

    Very clever!
    And to make it extra practical (for when the kids grow big enough to not need it any more)build it as a drawer with a removeable top. Just be sure to add bracing underneath it to prevent flexing. (perhaps a plus or pound symbol “#” of 3/4 ply set on edge)

    Good idea Hutch! I’m tired of stubbing my toes on the little step-stool that’s sitting in front of our vanity right now.

    Anyone have an idea for a latch/slide mechanism that will automatically close the step after the child steps down?

    Nice! What hardware did you use?
