Two painting tutorials in a week?
That is just not normal for me.
I told you I was going to work on improving that, and I guess I kept my word so far.
This toy box we have had for about 10 years. It actually has been sitting in Alex's closet with a lot of toys in it, that the boys have outgrown and no longer play with.
When I decided to the the Copy cat challenge, I pulled it out of the closet.
Had NO clue as always what I was going to do with it.
I never really have a set plan when I start a project. I kinda do as I go.
I had the paint on hand already.
The only thing I bought was the No trespassing sign.
Kilz was my friend! Made it much easier to paint.
The nice thing about this piece, is that I did not have to tape it off. The grooves really helped..
As you can see I used a Satin Black color, and the green was by dutch boy, it is called in the Garden.
Then came the fun part of junkin it up...Sanded away the edges..
I also just sanded away the sign to make it look old and weathered.
Jack is loving his new OLD toy box.
Enjoy the day, and as always thank you for stopping by and reading me:) XO!
