Brand New Toy Box

Happy Friday!!  The weekend is here and the toy box is now finshed.  This is the look before. 

My daughter was so excited to have a new toy box, and I was so excited to have something that fits all those toys.  I sanded, wood filled and sanded again.  It is not perfect, but somehow I think all the imperfections make it look a little vintage or something to that sort.  After I sanded I put two coats of primer on and then painted another two coats of an aqua color.  I was going to leave it but thought it was a little too bright.  So I took some white paint and put a tiny bit on the brush and I guess slightly white washed it.  I do like how it toned down the aqua and shows some of cracks and dings on the trunk.  Now for the big reveal......

I hope you like it. I think I like it because it stores all the junk I mean toys.  Makes picking up a little easier when everything has a place.  Have a great weekend!
Until next time...Kim
