Thrifty Toy Box Makeover

Thrifty Toy Box Makeover

Level of Difficulty: Easy


  • Toy-box (I bought mine second-hand for $15!)
  • Chalk paint (I used Americana Decor Treasure and Everlasting White)
  • Chalk paint sealer
  • Frog tape
  • Brushes
  • Mineral spirits


  1. Clean toy-box with a rag and mineral spirits. Let dry then wipe with a clean damp rag.
  2. Paint entire toy-box base color (white).
  3. Once dry, place frog tape in sections (I did horizontal lines on top and squares on sides)
  4. Paint with secondary color (treasure blue). Wait 30 minutes then do second coat.
  5. Peel off tape before it dries.
  6. Seal with wax or matte finish.
