Hunter Orange

    The third project completed for the same family is this toy box.
    The little guy had outgrown the original paint job and the family wanted his toy box to be painted orange.  It is a nice sturdy little box, that needed some tightening and new hinges.  I tried to choose very safe hinges for a toy box and I really like these.  There is a screw that you can tighten on each hinge to regulate how much pressure you need to open and close it.  That way they can adjust it so that it cannot slam shut on little hands.  Here is the before picture:
    Delivery this week!
    Next up are 2 larger projects, my daughter's kitchen set and a very nice old desk.  I also have some dining chairs to work on soon.  If you have contacted me to do a project for you, please remind me if I have not contacted you lately!

  1. What a nice trunk! And such a terrific transformation with just a coat of paint. Thanks so much for linking your project up at Vintage Charm :)

    1. Thank you Diana! I am most proud of the new hinges, and I wish I had gotten a picture of them. Nice and safe new hardware for the little ones that will put their toys in it!
