Thankfully, paint is paint and a little white paint easily covered up those lovely blue stripes.
After the paint dried, I used some sandpaper and distressed it a bit. I liked that a tiny bit of the under blue came through!
This beauty is going in my updated office + guest room. (I promise one of these days I’ll actually share the final updated room in total. There are some plans I am still waiting to complete before a reveal.)
As cute as these fun notepads are, I’m using the chest as sewing storage. I have my sewing basket, extra thread, the sewing machine pedal and cords all nicely tucked away in there.
