Out of this World!

October 3, 2011

Ok, ok…I don’t know if it’s out of this world but I think the project I’m going to share with you today, turned out pretty great.  I’ve had this toy box for over 13 years.  It was my daughter’s toy box and I bought it before she was even born.  It was orginally cherry wood and over time I painted it white.

For some reason I’ve never gotten rid of it and when we moved it sat in our garage, that is…until recently.

Above is the before picture, nothing to write home about except if  you want to write it on the top of it’s dusty lid!

So onto the after…

Much better don’t you think?  The toy box was painted with Benjamin Moore’s New York State of Mind eggshell latex interior paint and I hodge podged some old maps that for the life of me I don’t know why I had!

I think it’s a big improvement and would look super fun in a little boy’s room!
