My Veggie Bin {Before & After}

Several years ago I bought this vegetable bin at a little boutique that was having a going out of business sale. I think I paid $15 for it. It was basically primed so I brought it home and painted it barn red. Although I still love the look It doesn't go with the way I want to decorate this house. And it was ready for a face lift. I started sanding it before I took the picture but this is what it looked like BEFORE....



Its new home is going to be in my dinning room so I decided to paint it to match my table. I sanded down the top completely and then I had my dad router the top for me to give it a more finished look. I stained it and painted the same colors as my table. I love the way it came out! This is the AFTER...



It always amazes me what a few cans of spray paint and and stain can do! Now its on to my Dresser!:)

I found a piece just like this a few months ago cant believe there were two in the world :D LOL!If you have a moment please take a look at what I did with mine http://thedecorativepaintbrush.blogspot.com/2011/06/funky-chicken.html I kept mine white too, but made it a bit funkier, but that's just me. I love your choice of white and dark brown top!

I love it!!
I found one for sale in my area on one of the facebook "Area sale/trade/want" pages but she wants a bit too much for it and since i have no idea what i'd actually store in there I don't really want to pay that much for it, but seeing your transformation makes me really think twice.. Maybe I will see how low I can get it for!
