Another Project Checked Off The list!
We found this Chest at a resale shop and I thought it would be perfect for the kids new Playroom! There was a ton of stamps in it, So Im guessing someone might have used it just for storage, maybe collecting stamps! Not to Sure lol
This was fairly quick and easy! I wanted a simple look to Match the Play table we are going to start making.
Here’s the Chest Before
We took of the Fake Handles and the Decorative Panels then Gave it a Nice Sand!
As I primed and painted, Matt was Making me a Different top. I wanted to go with a New wood and Rustic top that he made from New Pallets he got from work! Again, He wanted to use Wood Filler, but I was against it. Im loving the Rustic, Kind of Beat up, lots of character kind of look!
Here is the finished project… Beside the Clear Poly Coat which gave it a nice shine!
With the top, I sanded , White Washed the Wood then Finally Stained it! The White washing before staining definitely helped with giving it the color and look we were going for!
And that’s That! Overall this was Pretty quick and Easy Project for the Kids to put their toys in, Because Really, I don’t think we can ever run out of new places to put Toys!
The overall price for the Project came out to be around $40! That’s INCLUDING the CHEST PRICE!!
Update: I Have been getting asked what color stain I used, So I wanted to list my products! I Will make a post dedicated to exactly what I did to the wood to make it look like The Pictures above!
