{Toy Chest}

This piece I picked up this morning, I got started on it right away because I knew exactly where it was going.  I needed toy storage downstairs.  I don't know about you, but I hate clutter and that includes toys.  I think I'm a little on the OCD side of life.







When I saw this piece online I thought it was much bigger so I had envisioned putting it in a different place in our newly finished basement, (I thought is a buffet table, silly me)..... so I was pleasantly surprised when I realized it was a chest.  Yes!  I've been looking for one of these desperately.  I was even contemplating spending 250 bucks at TJMaxx for a large chest, if you know me that price is waaay outta my happy place.





  I'm so excited to get organized downstairs.  It's waaay cuter than any of the other chests I've been looking at online.  







I initially thought I could take off the hardware and spray paint it ORB, but those babies are glued on.  They're entirely just for show, the doors and drawers don't open.  So I had to do the second best thing, just paint them.  






Look at those fancy little feet.  Aw, I'm in love.






And a keyhole.  I don't have the key, but I don't think I'll be needing to lock my son's toys up anyway, unless he's really bad! ;)






So perfect for me, yay!
