Toy Box Makeover

Update:  Monkeys were all Christmas gifts from a couple different years;)

This has been our toybox for the past few years.  It was my toybox when I was a girl.  Since I finished my couch covers I'd been wanting to paint a couple of things to bring the new 'look' together.  So a few weeks ago when it was nice and warm I got the paint out.
This is what came out of the toybox.  I'm sure none of you have this big of a mess inside a toybox.  I'd been putting this off for this very reason.

Finished.  And the toys did NOT go back in here.  Most of them got put back where they belonged.  Like the pollys, the barbies, the little people, the Lightning McQueen cars, etc.  all went back to their real homes in rubbermaid tubs or baskets.  There was a bag of trash too - large enough to be a tad bit embarrassing:)
Middle Sister wanted her picture taken on the 'new' bench.
Middle Sister and Little Sister decided a picture of all the curious george monkeys we have somehow aquired was necessary so they busily arranged them.

Then they insisted on several pictures of them with the monkeys.  I think they fit right in!
