I acquired a perfect wooden spool recently. Too perfect for a goat toy. I have a few others for the goats, so they will not be without! Anyway, this will become a tableshelf. Because my room is carpeted, I won't add castors. But I am having a hard time deciding whether to stain it, it paint it. I like the look of natural wood, and also the look of distressed, antique wood. So I am torn between using stain, or milk paint. There are some logos stamped on the spool. If I stain, I will need to sand them away, since I do not like how they look. But I could just paint right over it with milk paint. I will need to sand the rough edges anyway, though. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas? Here is a picture if it. Sturdy and glorious! It is pretty much brand new.
