When you buy a storage system and never get around to refinishing it like you planned... years and year later. This was definitely one of those projects. I bought this unfinished wood storage piece YEARS ago from Michael's Arts and Crafts (when I worked there). I knew it would look very cool painted and fixed up, but it never got there. In my deffense, I did use it! It served a lot of different purposes around the house. It just never got a paint makeover.
After going down the rabbit hole of redecorating our kid's bedroom, I had this slim space next to the bunk bed and their bedroom door. We needed a place to put things and the table there was WAY too big, but it worked for awhile. Then I saw this piece, which was holding all of my acrylic paints, sitting in the laundry room and thought - that would be perfect for the space!
So I found a new home for my acrylic paint bottle and got to work on their new basket storage. I share with you in the video below just how it all came to life. My little guy even got to help paint. He loves to help! I love that he gets to help with something that is for his room.
I hope you enjoy this video tutorial!
