Kids step stool w/ storage

This stool was made as a b-day present for my nephew Ryder (hence the play on words "free Ryder") . His dad, an avid motorcycle enthusiast, is deployed w/ the army in Afghanistan so I went w/ a patriotic motorcycle theme. Ryder just turned 2 so he is about to start the adventure of potty training si I figured this would be perfect for that and double as bath toy storage. To keep the wood from getting damaged by the humidity of the bathroom, I used pressure treated plywood and further protected it w/ tompsons wood waterproofer. I also drilled 3 rows of drainage holes in the bottom so water wouldn't be sitting in there.

Type of Wood
Pressure treated plywood
Finish Used
General Finishes black milk paint. And an out door varnish. I also added a non-slip texturizer to the paint on the top stool. It's a little rough on bare knees but I figured scrapped knees were not as bad as a cracked skull
