With everyone Marie Kondo-ing their stuff and the minimalist revival in full force, Bauhaus furniture is definitely in demand. This video shows you how to make your own very trendy, very clever, multi-purpose Bauhaus stool in minutes.

All you need is four wooden planks, a drill and some screws and you can create stools that can be combined in different ways and used as anything from a kids table and chair to a shelf or bench.
