How to Create Your Own Pedicure Platform

Elevating clients for feet-focused services generally improves nail tech ergonomics, as you don’t have to hunch over to do close-up work. And building your own set-up means you can design and decorate it however you want. (Hello, purple paint and glitter!) 

For over a year, I tried to come up with a better pedicure station. The 21” platforms I originally used worked great for getting my clients’ feet up higher for me to work on, but not everyone had an easy time with the two steps. Plus when someone sat at the front of the chair to put their shoes on, the chair had a tendency to rock forward. I finally came up with a solution that is easier for clients, keeps their feet high enough, and accommodates both my FootsieBath pedicure basins and gel toe services. One long weekend later and with the building skills of my husband, the new pedicure platform was complete. I absolutely love the new set-up. Here’s how we built it.
