      Who knew 5 gallon bucket could be so useful? I needed more seating in my classroom around my small group table, so I saw where someone made stools out of 5 gallon paint buckets. I tweaked their idea and made my own. Here is how I made them: 1. I went to Lowes and bought 5 buckets and lids. I then went to Hobby Lobby and bought some foam and fabric. I also bought some spray adhesive and some thin pieces of round wood. 2. I spray painted my buckets green to match my theme. Then I glued the wood to the foam and wrapped my fabric around them. Then I glued the cushion to the bucket lid. I added a little ribbon to give it a little more cuteness.

      Love this idea. 5 gallon bucket this instead of chairs for small group table, because 6 chairs don't all fit correctly. These might work better than the milk crates under the kidney tables.
