Toy chest bench made for a princess.

I forgot to take a before pic (like most times) But, this is basically the idea of where I started. My husband used to work at a Mattress store which was part of a larger Furniture place when he picked this baby up for 10 bucks. (The only thing I miss about him working there was the major scores on quality pieces of furniture.) Anyway, back to the project. This baby has been sitting in my house for a few years with no personality.
Then my baby girl comes into the world and I begin the fun process of decorating a little girls room.
Step 1: sanded down, cleaned off and detached the lid.
step 2: a little 'ballet slipper' pink spray paint and distressing
step 3: I found queen size quilters batting at a thrift store for 4 bucks! When I got it home I measured and cut to size. Layering the pieces together I used 3M spray adhesive between each level.
step 4: Using this darling brown zebra fabric I got the day after Thanksgiving I used the same spray adhesive to attach it to the lid.
step 5: attach lid back to toy box and added two accent pillows (one of which my mom made)...and Voila!
Isn't she darling!?!

P.S. In the process of doing a chair rail...
