It's really sturdy and I love the legs! Matthew even liked it when I brought it home and his favorite part was that there is a stamp on the bottom that says, " Manufactured in Maine State Prison." I will give the Maine State Prison it's due- They make good furniture but I don't know about anything else!
It's top was a little messed up and it had paint drips on it.
So I sanded and resealed the top using 3 coats of satin Safecoat Acrylacq. That is a low VOC and low Odor sealer that I purchased here and I use for most of my projects. But with this one- no stain- I really liked the wood as it is.
I didn't take out all the imperfections. I like the fact that it is showing a little age and character. I think I should paint the legs though. Just haven't been able to decide on a color. I am open to suggestions!
Even in it's current state the babies LOVE this stool. They carry it around and sit on it where ever the mood strikes. I am never quite sure where I am going to find it.
I should have a kitchen update for you this week- we spent a good portion of our Labor Day weekend trying to take down the wallpaper. We found a few surprises and we are almost done. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
