Under-the-Sink Step Stool

Anyone who has small kids has probably tripped (more times than they would like to admit) on the step stool in their child's bathroom. Ana White, the DIY superhero of furniture building plans, designed a pull out step stool for her daughter's bathroom vanity: It slides out when the shortest members of her family need to brush their teeth or wash their hands and slides back in -- out of grownups' way -- when they're finished.

 Build your own using the instructions on her site, and when your little ones grow up, flip the step over to add drawer space.
