I picked up this little camping stool at a rummage sale thinking it would be great for my granddaughter. I decided to clean it up a bit so sanded it down. I then painted the horse on the top and trimmed the sides with burgundy and a thing black strip on top of that to separate it out. To protect my work I sprayed a clear polyurethane on it. 3 coats. Needless to say it is now a little side table in my house because it is too cool for camping.
