Upcycle Project

I found this little treasure at a local thrift store and loved the detail on the side and knew I had to do something with it. I had intended on using it outside somewhere, but it turned out so cute I may use it as a small project table for the kids.

The original was brown. I spray painted it orange, but let it bleed so the brown texture would still show through. I also didn't want it to be 'perfect' because of the character of the nicks and chips it had. Then I simply added wrapping paper to the top to complete the look.

Turned into a cute little piece of eyecandy, don't you think?
