Boy Toys With A Mama Makeover

Hi all!
Thanks for loving me through yesterday's meltdown.
As promised I'm back to normal today,
whatever that is. ; >
Today I bring you a project that was a year in the making.

It all started at a yard sale last summer,
when James purchased a boy's dream come true...
a real treasure chest!
Here's a picture of him once the transaction was complete.

He's beaming!!!

Now flash forward 12 months, to last week.
That's when I went looking for a solution to house
the every growing figure collection in my living room.
I had lots of ideas but decided on quickest turn around time.
Mama wanted to wrap it before school pick up.
I started by lightly sanding the chest.
Then I spray painted it with Valspar's Wrought Iron.
Once it was dry it needed a little something extra.
I scored a roll of these damask stickers months ago
and had them stashed back for the right project.
I'm thinking this was just the right project.

I love it so much that I'm actually excited
about James keeping a few toys in the living room.
Hooray for Boy Toys with a Mama Makeover. :)

Nicely done! I keep baskets in the living room, but I would love something with a cover. :)
