A $3.00 dollar toy box becomes a storage chest. I wanted to try the crackling technique using white glue and stain, and although it is time consuming,I love the way the completed chest looks. I added a handle that was an old door knocker to be able to carry the chest. Did this project over a weekend, and now have storage for DVD's and picture CD's
