Girly Toy Chest

I found this chest at the Salvation Army a few weeks back. I had thought it could be great for some extra storage in my sister's apartment. Unfortunately, there is no space for extra storage.  My other sister totally jumped on the chance for it as a toy storage for my niece.  My sister-in-law saw it and I am determined to find one for my other niece...I have to be fair :)
It has some really pretty detailing.
I gave it  a good cleaning in my sink.
I wrapped up the inside of it.
I gave it a coat of Rustoleum primer in white.
Then a few light coats of Rustoluem Berry Pink.  The handles were painted with a white spray paint I had on hand. 
The pretty detailing.
Now to find another one.  Hmm.

Isn't it the worst when you find ONE thing and love it and then have to try to find it again. I swear that's when I thrift every single day so I don't miss it.
