Hey there! When I talked about my project plans for July, I showed you a picture of the unfinished lingerie chest I was planning to makeover. This rather dull chest of drawers was used in my son's closet for years. But, once we installed a new closet system in our current house, the unfinished chest of drawers became homeless. Never one to pass up a furniture makeover opportunity, I was [...]

About a week and a half ago, I posted about this sweet little storage cube makeover: Well, I had two storage cubes, and I've just finished upcycling the second one.  Allow me to introduce you to its brother...the industrial toy box!

Milk Paint Makeover – Part 1
