CRAFTS: TRANSFORM YOUR TOY BOX

1) Take one BASIC WOODEN toy box (Euro 70 from Lidl this one)

2) Paint it white and the top silver (I used satinwood paint)


 

3) With the same white paint used for the sides, paint on a road. I used the same idea as a labyrinth so that the traffic would flow from the roundabout, and used a 'business' size envelope to guage the size.

 


4) Find cool stickers and get the kids to decorate the sides. Mine cost E2 from a discount store. I carried on the car theme.


 

5) A voila, a completely transformed playful toy box, put together for a pittance.

Ah, I'm in the up-cycling mode as well, nothing as brilliant as something lovely for practically nothing! I really like your road layout on top...
