The second I saw the elephant I knew exactly what project I wanted to take on! My spray paint finger was twitching!
Saturday this beauty received a coat of gold spray paint
After just two coats of paint the elephant was looking GREAT!
On Sunday I pulled out this little box that I purchased about 3 months ago from Jo Anne Fabrics for only $5.00
I removed the hardware
and I stained the box using MINWAX Water Based Wood Stain in Coffee. We had it leftover from a project in Hunter Man's room... This was actually my first time ever staining anything and I am extremely happy with the results...
Currently the elephant box lives in a bookcase in our living room (appropriately holding up some awesome Cheney books) but I think that after I organize our master bedroom the box will ultimately take up residence in there. I plan to use it for remote storage on the table behind my bed.
I cannot wait to get started on organizing and updating a few things in our master bedroom. The space is currently looking a little sad... When I tackle this room as a part of my February goals I hope to have as much success as I did in January with my Kitchen.
