Before & After- Toy Box

I've been excited about sharing this project with you all and today I finally can since my friend's baby shower was today. I found a toy box at a garage sale in my neighborhood for $10 and I immediately knew I had to have it for my friend, Rachel's baby shower. Not only did I get the toy box, but it was stuffed full of toys. It took me a while to sort through the toys, clean it out, and start painting, but I was able to donate the toys so it was a win-win situation. I love the way it turned out!

BEFORE:


 
 
AFTER:

 the front
the sides
 the back
the top
the inside.
 
I spray painted the black with chalkboard paint and then painted the trim and inside white. Then I wrote around the outside with chalk. Super easy fix! Hopefully Nevaeh will enjoy her toy box for years to come. I'm sure she'll make plenty of messes with the chalk.
