It’s kinda sad knowing there won’t be anymore toys scattered about the house. At least for many years to come until we have grandchildren. How many times I stepped on lego’s and power rangers and cussed under my breath. Those darn things hurt when they get stuck on the bottom of your feet:(
Today, I am saying goodbye to toys. I am sharing a toy box makeover with chalkworthy paint. The very same paint I used on my rocking chairs on the porch recently.
And for the record, I am saving all the toys for the future grands. Jack loved his legos!
I loved the paint so much that I actually reached out to Chalkworthy paint company and asked if I could share another project using their paint and also try out some new colors. Without hesitation the paint was on its way. And the best part of it, they are also offering one of my readers a complete kit as well. Details will be at the end. No worries, I make it easy:)

This is actually the second makeover the toy box has had. Back in 2011 it went from Oak to this two toned funky makeover. This is actually a heavy tox box and constructed very well. I love that it can be updated according to the new room decor for my Mom and Alex’s unisex room. After this piece I can share with you the entire room. Finally, I know. I have been pretty slow at it these past few weeks.
For this project I used two colors.
First I did the entire piece in Cottage. After stepping back and analyzing the room, I decided I really wanted the white linen on the top of the trunk. I am so happy I made that decision. It only took me a few minutes to paint the top. The entire piece required two coats of paint and dry time in between each coat. Then one coat of wax to finish it off. I love it because you don’t have to prime or sand anything before you start. As you can see the original paint job was pretty dark and rustic looking. The paint covered very well.
I have to say I am delighted the way the room is all coming together. Right now, I have it staged for Mom. I am quite certain Alex would not enjoy the basket of hydrangeas and dried roses. When I share the reveal I will show you both ways I will be able to make it comfortable for the two of them while occupied.
The Monogram is perfect. M for Mom, M for Manno our last name. I just wanted to add a little something, something to the tox box transformation besides just repainting it. I always feel like everything has to be accessorized in some way shape or form.
I am so thrilled with this paint that today I am offering YOU, my lovely readers a kit of your very own. The kit will include:
A Chalkworthy Starter Kit (1 qt of the Chalkworthy color of your choice, 1 wax & tool kit, and 1 tin of the Black Soft Wax)
