Oh ho ho! I thought this project would never be finished! Luckily we've had 3 days of really beautiful weather (hello, where were you last week beautiful weather?) and I was able to fix my um... small problem without too much drama.
Here's what it looked like before. I should've taken a better shot of how absolutely battered this thing was. You also can't tell, but one of the lids is warped (which I can't fix).
In the process of cleaning this thing out, I found enough dirt to plant vegetables! Ew.
Took it all apart and sanded it down good to get all the gross stuff off.
We won't talk about how many cans of spraypaint I actually used in the process of this project. Here you see can #2 of the white.
And the yellow paint... this was with the lousy non-covering paint. The second can was much better paint.
Oh lookie! All done =D The problem from before has been taken care of with spray can #3 of the white... which I wouldn't have needed if I had done it right in the first place!
Here it is folded out. I lined the inside with squares of felt. Maybe I should've painted the inside too, but it's done and I'm not taking it apart to paint it again... ever.
