The bucket stool epitomizes exactly what we are trying to do at Homemade Modern. The stool is durable, simple to make and aesthetically pleasing. It looks like something that could retail for $50 but you can make it for about $5. What’s great about this project is that there is very little waste. The bucket serves a vessel for mixing the concrete and as the form for the stool. When the stool has cured it can be removed without damaging the bucket. A 48" dowel cut into three 16-inch pieces provides legs without waste.
