Day 2: Lane Toy Chest

Pretend there's no big mess :)

Here is another one of those giddy-wiggly feeling thrift store finds. Only $17 and it's a Lane. Okay, so not really sure what a "Lane" is, but a lady at the thrift store who was looking at it with me made a really big deal over it...so yeah...It's a LANE!!! Did my really long sentence convince you?

I've been doing little projects here and there over the past two weeks for my daughters' bedroom and I knew I wanted a toy chest for all of their stuffed animals and dolls. This chest seemed like the perfect solution.


It's amazing what white paint and a couple of pink polka dots can do. The girls loove it! My inspiration came from All Things Thrifty. I'll never look at second hand furniture the same way. There is almost always potential.

Oh and I also made the chalkboard hanging above the chest!


  1. Very cute Ruth - and I know what a Lane is and that's a great deal.

  2. I've wanted a lane since I was about 12- that's a long time- they are timeless. Since you know how old I am, you know that's true :) Good work, I'm so proud of you! And, I'm so excited to hear from you daily now!

  3. That is so stinkin' cute!! Love it!

  4. Wow! Super cute! I love polka dots.

  5. Cute! I'm always on the lookout for a toy chest, but I have not gotten lucky yet!
