Furniture Flip~ Pine Toy/Blanket Box

Last week I painted my son's night table, and this solid pine toy/blanket box.


Our youngest son J and I found this solid pine box with casters at a local garage sale. I like stained pine, but decided to paint it to sell it (I figured white paint would appeal to more buyers.)


It had a hinged top, was made with nice thick pine and we got it for $10. I painted it with white Behr Paint and Primer In One that I had on hand.


Stenciling ala Miss Mustard Seed would have been pretty, but since I wasn't keeping this piece I didn't want to put too much time into it. It sold the first day listed.



I'm hoping this weekend that I can find some more pieces to paint. And yes, I'm keeping my eye out for a small end table for the right side of the leather sofa in the first picture.

I'm linking up to some fun parties this week! Hope to 'see' you there!:

  1. I think the white looks fresh and clean and will be a great coffee table/toy box for someone. Good luck with your hunting this weekend.

  9. Hi Elizabeth,

    I think Pine is such a nice wood to work with.

    You done a grand job on the blanket box, no wonder it sold so easy.

    Nice blog post too.
