I found this little piece at a flea market this past Summer and didn't know quite what to do with it. A Friend of mine was over the other day and saw it and said it looked like an old toy box and just needed a checkerboard print or something. Well it stuck and after that, all I could see in my head was an old antique toy box with a checkerboard print on top. It had to look old and distressed and the print had to be grayish or brown. Ya know, old looking.
Here is my finish product. I'm so excited that it came out exactly like I pictured it. I had better before pictures that accidentally got deleted so I just took pictures of where I last left off on my venture to change him up.
I took more photos of this transformation but until I know how to create a button that says "go here for tutorial" and sends you somewhere other than this home page, I'll just hold them in a little place on Google called PICASA. Plus I don't want this post to be huge, know what I mean?
I didn't post the inside of this piece but it is lined with some brown fabric I had left over. Trust me it looks awesome. The picture I took made it look green but it is brown and I promise it is pretty!
Oh and one more thing I intend to sell this as well. If you know someone who is interested, please let me know. The price isn't set yet but it will be soon.
>Wow I've really rambled...I'm just so excited.
OK, got to work on project #2 for today.
