I have been wanting something with a barn door look for so long, so finally painted this barn door inspired chest!
I’ve been working on sprucing up my living room a bit this Summer. I wanted to insert a little more color into my decor. I have a crazy love for aqua, and have recently been bitten by the the yellow bug as well, so these are the colors I decided to use in my gallery wall. There was one problem though…as much as I was loving my colorful gallery wall, I did not love the chest below it. So, I decided to spruce it up a bit!
Some of you may think it’s pretty as is, but I just didn’t love it. I wanted something with a little more color. I wish you could see the picture of this chest before I painted it white years ago. It was horribly scratched and dark brown. For years, we kindly referred to it as the coffin. I know that sounds morbid, but it was truly awful. The inside is amazing, and the perfect place to store our family scrapbooks and keepsakes, but it can be cute too, right?
I simply taped around the tops and sides using Frog Tape, then taped an X on each side, making sure they were centered.
I just love taking something old and giving it a new look!
