My teen daughter wanted a stool for her room. So she could actually sit while putting on make-up in the mornings. I had searched Target and Walmart, but didn't want to pay the price for the nicer type stools. I was tickled to find this solid wood, already painted and pretty much in tip top shape one at the junk store. $10!!!! Much better on the budget. Plus I didn't have to do a thing to it! The stool matches her bedding, is the perfect size for her dresser and small enough to tuck away in a corner. SCORE!
