Updating our kitchen stool

It took two weeks after moving to do my first painting project.

I really like my Ikea step stool. I have been intending to paint the steps since I bought it.  The wood is untreated so there was a problem of dirt lingering so I busted out the paint and had Rose help me.

Yep, I had Rose help paint. She spreads the first few strokes of paint and then I make sure it is all smoothed out. It takes a lot of my patience for her to help but I remind myself that I want to do fun creative projects with her.
