My new stepstool is all done!
I painted it with Home Hardware’s Beautitone paint in a soft yellow. After the paint had dried, I sanded it with a course sanding sponge. Let me tell you, that paint is tough! I should have used a little power sander but I was too lazy to go out to the garage to use it. So I scrubbed away at it by hand and actually like the way it turned out. The sanding sponge was course enough that it left some scratches along with the edges that I wore away.
Then I used some walnut stain and rubbed it around until I like the look. After the stain dried, I finished it off with a coat of wax. And then I looked at a label that came with it and noticed a graphic that it said not to paint it! I assume that is because it could be slippery if you aren’t careful.
I love how I turned out and I hope it will get knocked around even more at the cabin because of all the use it will get.
