Here is a pic of the chest after two children and five grandchildren using it as a toy box.
Still beautiful but a little beat up.. stickers had been put on top, many scrapes and dents.
After the first coat of Annie Sloan White, I decided on a stencil to add a bit of character. Can you see the old handles below on the right?
I decided to take the stencil to another level and make it somewhat dimensional with plastic wood. Not the best choice in products to make a stencil stand out. I will be looking into other products if I ever try this again.
Remember I said I decided on another handle for the side? Here is the before. Of course I had started painting on them.
I picked these babies up right after our estate sale trip. Of course we needed to stop by Hobby Lobby!
I love them!
Next deciding on a fabric. I decided the ticking would be more suited for my project.
I added a layer of foam and batting. Once the fabric was on I put a strip of trim around the edge.
Another pic of before:
Have a great week!
