Kalli isn't locked away but she's about to bark because she thinks she is. This is the current state of the chest that was started to me, the wind literally, let's hook the top of two seconds, the wind took the top off, which is over there. I'm going to show you it in a second, but the paint is all chip. It really doesn't serve any type of purpose. It's rusted I want to see if I can bring it back to life, maybe remove the legs. Restore the wood. Add some wheels, so we can move it around easy because we tend to host a lot of events in the back and we're always moving items. So it'd be cool if we could just like push this over and it could also be low enough, be like a chest near the basketball court. So that's this situation. This is the top of it again. It's just totally thrashed, I'm gonna sand. It down. Take off the hardware and kind of show you where I'm at after that I started by sanding off the paint completely starting with an 80 grit sandpaper and working my way to 220. I've linked all the tools that I'm using down below for you. I then kind of just put the pieces back together that we're falling apart with wood glue and cut the legs off with my reciprocating saw. I noticed the wood was too damaged by termites to keep it, as is so.
I wanted to cut that trim off and kind of put a new layer on top of it, since I couldn't just use wood filler to fill all the canals when we get up close and personal you'll be able to see it. I sanded it down once more when the trim was removed and then notice. There was some overhang on the bottom that I just used. My hand saw to remove the bottom pieces were loose, so I went in with my nail gun and just made sure that they were stable. As for the table. Looking back, I wish I left that tram it, but at the moment it was a good idea to get rid of it. So I went ahead and removed that outer edge piece because I thought I wanted everything flush which definitely wasn't the way to go. You'll see since the wood was too damaged to just paint, as is you'd, be able to sail the grooves. I cut down four pieces of pine / outer wall at a 45-degree angle, almost trimming them out. I added what glue before securing it to that surface. I also used my speed square to make sure all the angles were 90 degrees. I wasn't sure how it's gonna fill the insides. I liked the look of the raw wood. I just didn't like the look of the damaged raw wood. You also know how I feel about nail gun marks, but I just couldn't avoid it in some areas. It just wasn't securing and I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on. So I just went ahead and secured some pieces with my nail gun that were a little bit Wiggly.
I decided to get a steel panel from Home Depot and cut it out to a size of that negative space in between the trim and insert it. So it's kind of like a metal and wood situation going on modern builds. Definitely has given me inspiration with this lately, because this channel has been full of metal and wood accent DIY. Are you guys need to check it out? I measured and cut a panel for each wall, so four in total, where the metal met the wood when I went to install is where I decided to kind of add some construction adhesive that I had on hand, because I was far too lazy to run to The store to get anything else it flipped it over and just pushed it into the pocket of which it fits in between the trim held it down and put some weight on top. I let that dry completely before moving on to the next wall. If you have clamps, you can do that too, but I just used my power tools as weight. Take that back, I thought I was gonna be doing like a wall by wall type of situation, but that's not true. I did the wood trim.
First, let the wood glue, sit and really secure to the original trunk itself. Before I put on the other sealed pieces, because I did learn that if you try to force a steel piece, that is a little bit too big, you will break the wood if it is not like secured on with the wood glue, dried and all I tried One of my subscriber suggestions by using wood glue to fill the nail holes it actually worked out really well, so thank you for that. I did add some casters to that logged in to that did not so I can move it around and put it in place wherever need be. A mistake that I caught halfway through was that you could kind of see the wood behind the metal piece. So I actually went in with some silver paint and trimmed the outside edges. So, on the off chance you could see the wood it kind of looked like steel, at least that's what I was hoping. I didn't stain or paint the wood. I just went in with a clear finish that was meant for the outdoors again. I have linked everything besides the trunk that I've used down below ivory secured the top together with some spare pieces of wood that I had in wood glue and then I decided to add a cushion which I am a no seamstress.
So this cushion is a super budget. I had some leftover foam that I cut down to size and then legitimately wrapped it like a present in a shower curtain that I had because I knew that I was gonna, replace it with one that was actually well made. I glued it to the top of that trunk piece that I took the trim off of and then was like. Oh hey, it needs trim, so I went back in with a skinnier piece of pine mitered. Those at a 45-degree angle and nail-gun them on to the edges, but then I realized - I couldn't add, hinges like I really wanted to, because I didn't make the trim big enough, so it couldn't open on itself. I have to find a different type of hinge. So I took off the hinges because it's not gonna be able to fold back of how I trimmed the top, so I'm just gonna rest. It on even though it'd be cool, to have a thrift flip 100 % done. This does happen to me. Quite often with thrift flips is it kind of goes in phases of personality. So I need to fine-tune a couple of things, but that's totally fine with me. I thought this would be a good hiding spot for Kelly's basketballs, but she definitely improved me wrong in two seconds flat. Regardless this transformation is huge, whether you like it or not. It is huge before and after difference.
