So you can certainly imagine my excitement when I came across this trunk at a yard sale:
I know, I know, doesn't look like much. But I knew he needed a toy chest and this chest was super sturdy and made from really good wood. I even got my sister's opinion because she is the expert in my opinion! She was very impressed with my purchase so I was very happy.
But then... I knew I wanted to paint it blue because they have a nautical-theme going on in their house. But I am not a painter. I didn't know how much to get, what kind, what color, NOTHING. So I turned to another expert - Joe at Sandhills Paint. I showed him a picture of the chest and explained where I was going with this project. He helped me pick out the perfect color and primer, and helped me understand what type of paint I needed and everything.
Finished: Mariner Blue!
I am completely happy with the outcome of this "trash to treasure" project. It's filled with toys at Kaleb's house now, and I hope he'll be able to enjoy it for several years!
Next project for us from Sandhills Paint: our master bathroom! I'm excited!
