Look! Customized Storage Bench

Here is some diy inspiration in honor of our January feature, Resolution Renovation. We happened upon this adorable renovated storage bench in the Living Etc. gallery. That Alfie is one lucky kid. Click through for some project tips below the jump...

Start off with a piece you already have or a flea find that needs some tlc. If you don't have either, try the Hennes Storage Bench from IKEA. It's only $99. Lightly sand and prime all surfaces. Paint with chalkboard paint. You can even get chalkboard paint that's magentic. Try this one. Sew up a cushion in a fun patterned fabric and then your let your little one decorate the finished piece with his own chalk designs.
