I recently bought this cart, which I love. My plan is to use it as a bar. But midway through setting up, I thought to test the paint for lead, and got a faint positive. Since I'm expecting a baby, lead and lead dust are a concern. I could just stick the cart away until he's grown, but I'm hoping that instead someone in the Apartment Therapy LA community will have a solution. Can I varnish the cart? Any ideas would be really appreciated.

Editor - Lead paint is serious business. Has anyone else dealt with a vintage painted item that tested positive for lead?
