It was in pretty sad shape, but it was sturdy and the inside had 4 stacking wooden shelves. Louie kind of turned his nose up at it but sometimes you see something and you just gotta have it! I gave it a good scrubbing and let it sit outside for a few days in the sun. Then I stained the inside of the box and the shelves with a dark stain....
I pulled out one of my new favorite brushes - the Zebra Wedge brush. I won a box of their brushes a few weeks ago and I have to say - I love them! They are amazing. The bristles are thick and the paint goes on like a dream.
A couple of weeks ago I got this full container of lavender paint at a garage sale for 50 cents. It's a really pretty color and come on...... 50 cents!
The box got 2 coats of paint and then I decoupaged some rose napkins on the top and one napkin on the front. Decoupaging with napkins is one of my new favorite things to do. Have you tried it yet?
Then I gave the whole box a light distressing, put a coat of polyurethane over the napkins and then waxed the entire thing.
What do you think? I adore the color! Plus the lavender paint and the rose napkins kind of keep my husband from stealing it from me. LOL!
The drawers are awesome. I can't wait to fill them up with all my tools. Plus, the box is on wheels and has a handle so I can roll it around when I'm working on something.
It's so purty!!!!
