I'm not sure of the condition it will be in when I pick it up later, but I was wondering if anyone has experiance with restoring old footlockers? I am assuming this will be one of the military types that seem to abound in this area. I am hoping to turn it into a toy chest for the kids.
And advice would be helpful, I will get pics once I pick it up later.
Thanks in advance,
Paint it,for a girl, leave it as-is for a boy, they like that kind of army stuff , remove the latch so a little-one can't trap himself inside, the only thing I would worry about is the heavy lid slamming on a little head or fingers.
The lock part is all bent and gnarly not suitable for a childs toy box I'd be afraid they'd catch a sharp edge or get a little finger stuck in the gap, so I made the decision that come spring it will house either my sewing notions OR my garden equipment IE bag of soil, spade,watering can, etc.
That's what I was thinking I could set the stawrberries on it and not lose needed space on the patio.
I'd still like to do something with the ugly fabric chairs the blue color really annoys me it comes off as "manly" on my pretty patio, I wonder if I can find a sprayable fabric paint? Or would normal spray paint work? I don't want it cracking and chipping. Has anyone got an idea?
This is my fav area of the apartment weather permitting I spend more time out there than I do inside. It's my writing nook!
