Upcycle: Toy chest

Another weekend. Another project. I transformed a old toy chest into a coffee table with a bit of Annie Sloan paint in my favourite colour. I was trying to decide what to do in our new family room when I found this old chest I thought would be perfect as a coffee table.
I gave it a bit of a clean and then painted it. It took me about 12 hours and most of that was overnight to let the paint dry. I might give it a bit of a fine sanding and give it another coat. Or I might not. P

    Love the colour of this one – is it an Annie Sloan or another brand? x

      Molly- it’s Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue. I’m not a huge fan of the colour & am thinking of reprinting the chest graphite.
