My little guy has had a toy box in his room for about six years now. The color of the wood doesn’t go with anything else we have in the room. But, it serves a function, so I hated to just get rid of it.
I decided what harm would it do in trying to paint it? Really, paint only makes things better, Right? I was crossing my fingers and hoping so. I usually only paint things two colors Black and White. So, this was a bit out of my comfort zone. But, I busted out the sander and sanded it to death.
Here is a picture of it Before.
And here is what it looks like after!! I love it!! So, the top is stained in a Dark Walnut finish and the bottom painted blue with a bit of distressing and aging applied.
Oh, my. It is so much better. At least I think so. My son, he wasn’t as impressed as I was.
