DIY Treasure Chest-Magical Mermaid

Bijou and I made a Magical Mermaid Treasure Chest for her to keep all of her under-the-water treasures in.  I also have a post on how to make a Pirate Treasure Chest.  For this Magical Chest we got a plain wooden chest at Michael’s Craft Store:

Then we got some paint and a piece of sponge.  The colors we used were seafoam green, lilac, lavender, blue jay blue and lime green.

We covered the whole box with a sponge paint of seafoam green:

We used a hair dryer to make the paint dry faster because 2 year olds are impatient….and so are their moms:

Here are the stickers we used to put on the Mermaid Treasure Chest.  I got them at Michael’s.  We didn’t use all of them so I will save the left overs for another project:
