Well… At least it\’s not blogger…..

Today’s little project….

Today we decided to steal my daughter’s toybox for our own selfish uses. (actually, it was in the way and hasn’t been opened in months)

We decided that it would make a great blanket chest in the living room.

The living room is Americana, so you can guess how this is getting painted.

Here’s the main part getting painted blue….

And the lid before we added the cream….

Cream stripes and stars added….

We brought it in and it is too blue! Time to take it back out and do some sanding….

Well… Here it is…. What do you think?
