Old Fashioned Milk Paint Challenge

Recently I joined a group called The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest! Each month a paint sponsor and group of gals chooses a theme and the fun begins. June is “Shabby Chic Storage” sponsored by The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company.

I am very excited about the theme and the paint sponsor as I love this companies product. Shabby chic to me means light color, "scuffy" paint that highlights the piece but keeps it looking aged and full of character. I had the perfect piece in mind to use as my project piece.
this old discarded wooden shoe shine kit

The outdated orange stain and glossy finish just made this piece boring, perhaps why discarded to trash ;( I am a sucker for old solid wood pieces and love to think of ways they can be given new life. I knew right away this one could be repurposed with many future uses. All of the uses would be for storage; holding a pretty bouquet, using for original shoe care products, a unique kitchen utensil holder or my favorite, magazine rack!
