DIY Bucket Stool FAIL (with Cool Feature!)


In today’s episode of Field Treasure Designs, I’m showing you how I completely FAILED at making my own version of the DIY Bucket Stool which can be easily made with concrete, a 5-gallon bucket and some wooden dowels.  I also decided to add a cool feature – a cell phone “nook” holder so you can sit on the DIY Bucket Stool and tuck your phone into the side of it when you aren’t using it! Pretty cool idea, huh?! Well, the project totally went BUST, but I do show the process of how I made it and hopefully you can learn from my mistakes and do it better when you give this cool project a try. Enjoy!
