Got a Little Creative!

My youngest daughter decided that she would like her room repainted for her 16th birthday.  While I LOVED the idea of saving some money, there was much to be done before painting could commence.  She and I made a deal.  Her father and I would paint her room as long as she cleaned and decluttered A LOT.  She got right to work.  One of the things that she wanted to throw away was this bench that she had made in 7th grade. 

I was ABSOLUTELY not going to 'throw it away' and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  It was going to become a Read to Someone bench in my classroom.  So then I got right to work.  So far, I've only primed it and painted it white. 
I'm between ideas for the rest of it.  I used to paint B.C. (before children) but it's been quite awhile...20 years to be exact!  I've never used Mod Podge before but I've heard good things about it.  I just don't know if it would hold up to being sat on and stepped by many children.  Anybody have any good advice?
