    Default Best finish for a wooden cot..

    I have just brought a 2nd hand wooden cot that I am going to sand back and refinish.

    I would like something that is as 'green' as possible and kids safe - I hear they will chew on everything, particulary their cot.

    I have heard of low VOC paint but is that the best option?

    Should I look for some sort of natural resin???

    Any ideas??

    The rest of the furniture is white, im not overly fussed on the color just so long as its sealed and safe and not stinky!!

    I haven't sanded back the cot yet, but I think it will be a lighter pine color??

    Subscribing. I have started sanding back a cot already. My three other children have all chewed on my old cot, so that stain is probably safe
