It's always smart to have extra seating in the form of stools when playing with Legos, painting with watercolours or maybe having a party. Buy inexpensive stools at a flea market or from a furniture chain store and add style with a little paint. The latest trend is to paint everything except the bottom of the legs. We used masking tape to get sharp lines. Preserve some of the wood colour at the very bottom, or flip the whole thing and paint the feet instead. It's going to look fabulous either way!
