Man, I am loving Pinterest!
I have to say I'm actually pretty glad I didn't sign up until after our kitchen was done. I was already overwhelmed with all the decisions I had to make...I would have been a mess finding picture after picture after picture of amazing kitchens I would have wanted and not being able to decide which to pick.
But anyways, I've "pinned" tons of fun ideas and this is the first one I actually did.
This toy box is pretty beat up...it was my at my parent's house for a long time. I had painted it navy about a year ago. So i put on some masking tape. Didn't even measure.
Had some leftover gray paint that we used in the basement and that I used on our kitchen doors.
Removed the tape and voila!
When I painted it navy I didn't do any prep work or add any poly, so when I took off the tape some of the paint peeled off, but I actually kind of like it:
But really, I'm not even going to pretend it's anywhere near as cool as the inspiration, but it was "free" and took about 30 minutes. Can't beat that!
