Toybox

I have been diligently working on baby's nursery but still do not feel ready to post pictures yet. Sorry, it's coming soon for those who haven't snuck in to peek yet! One of the things that I felt compelled to complete before posting pics was her toybox. I found this thing at DI and yes, I talked the guy down from $20 to $10 haha. This is what it looked like when I got it.

and after 2 paint jobs and a couple of hours it now looks like this and I love it!

You can see a little of my paint job in the background :)

Oh, don't be ridiculous Gretchen. You don't owe me anything. This is strictly for you as a good friend. We can do it before or after your shower for sure, and maybe actually find a really good location, although all the ones in the field were really pretty. But we can talk about details when it gets closer.

Gretchen, that toy box is absolutely beautiful! I hope you will post instructions on how you did it. I'm very interested.

I am so not creative and have no vision of what could be. I would have seen that toy box and thought..."what a piece of junk, that doesn't match anything in my nursery," and here you go and turn it into something amazing. I am so impressed and definitely looking forward to seeing more pics!

That looks amazing! Nice work (and I can't believe you said it only took a couple of hours...if I were to attempt something like that it would probably take me months to complete!). Can't wait to see how the rest of the room turns out!

Gretchy, when is your baby shower? I haven't received anything yet. Let me know date, time, and place as soon as you can!

How about you donate some of you creativity to me... i'd enjoy that. Way cute toybox! I never would have even thought of doing that!!

The toy chest turned out really cute. So when are you going to come and decorate my house and make it cute. By the way I just saw that you tagged me. Is that your way of trying to get me post something :)

Sorry, I'm kind of a blogstalker and I've never talked to you in real life, but we used to be in the same ward. (Hope that's not weird!) That is sooooo cute! I agree- I would LOVE to know just how you did that! You should post directions.
