OutDoor ToyBox MakeOver

I've been searching and searching for an outdoor toy box for all my kids junk.
All the balls, squirt guns, and shovels were driving me batty. I used an old laundry basket last summer, but I'd had it this summer.

I made it my mission to find one. Then I realized they are so expensive. I mean really…$100 for something that's going to get trashed?! I don't think so.

Then yesterday I found one at a garage sale for $15. $15.oo people! I was so excited because it was in awesome condition (probably because she never kept it outdoors). I wasn't crazy about the colors so I bought a couple of cans of spray paint and, VOILA

I chose Rust-Oleum's Nutmeg and Espresso.  To be honest with you I'm not totally sure that the paint will hold up very well. I know that it states that it "Also Bonds To Plastic!"…but…I'm doubtful. We'll see how time goes by.

As soon as I put it against the wall I noticed I may have a slight obsession with brown.

Hmmm…I can't even help myself I guess.

I love the colors and I'm loving the lack of junk on my lawn!

I'd say it was the best $20 I've spent it a while!

Pst! I'm on BlogLovin. See you there!
