Toy chest Makeover

Nora has accumulated a ton of toys over the past year and they were starting to accumulate all over the house.  The pugs also love her toys and for some reason they think Nora's toys are their toys.  I'm sure it doesn't help that she throws a stuffed animal and they think it's a game of fetch and she claps when they bring the toy back to her.   So I went on a search for a toy chest.  I bought this one off Craig's List for 20 bucks and loved the scalloped details and a piano hinge. So just at looking at the bones of the chest I knew it just needed a little bit of paint and some new knobs.
I think it turned out perfect for a little girls room :) and think she will love it for years to come.

That's really perfect for kids without being too cutesy which I hate in kids furniture. Great job!!

That's so sweet, the various colors make it fun while the white details make it so classic! And hey, at least everyone loves her toys, her and the dogs... and they play together well!

Oh wow, that is some serious before and after. Well done! I echo the comment that it's not too cutesy, meaning your little lady won't outgrow it too soon. xo
