A project done!  The abused vintage toy box started out like this:

The white is actually wood filler, added by me.  But, you get the picture.  It was old, and rough, and needed lots of wood filler and love.  I sanded and filled and sanded some more.  Finally I chose turquoise paint and white for the inside.  Not as creative as I originally sought out to be, but it turned out fun so I left it there.  I antiqued the edges a bit and roughed up the “wear spots”.  I like how it turned out simple and fun!

After:

What do you think?  I think it turned out super adorable.  I was going to replace the handles, but the old ones are vintage ceramic and actually cleaned up nicely.  I’m even tempted to keep this one!  Why keep a toy box? … more news to come! 😉
