IKEA BEKVAM step stool, sand parts you intend to paint. Martha Stewart Crafts stencils (from Michael's), foam brush, paint color of your choice. Tape stencil down before blotting with foam brush. Rinse paint off every two or three stencils so it doesn't build up on the stencil. Voila! A nice pop of color for your kitchen. It will probably get dirty after stepping on it so much though, so perhaps coat the horizontal parts with something?
