Gracie's box is sweet,
just like the little one who uses it.
And Francesco's toy box features a clever
alphabet font that has an image
attached to each letter.
If you'd like to use this font for one of your projects,
you can download it here.
I had a template made of Francesco's name,
using the alphabet font,
and painted it with "Rub-and-Buff."
Then, to give the letters a bit of dimension,
the right side of each letter was shaded
with a fine line of Burnt Umber.
This toy chest is also painted very simply.
Each side has a sheer plaid design
that allows the wood grain to show.
Did you know that they can be purchased in a roll
and every fifth nail head accepts a tack
that secures it to the wood?
You don't have to nail each one individually!
Each of these toy chests was given to a baby,
but the chest can be used for years --
and may be passed down to the next generation someday.
