Knorr Storage Chest

???????????????????????????????

This stunning storage chest was left neglected in the attic for a long time until I decided to adopt it and bring it home with me a few months ago. Meet the newest member of the family. It doesn’t have a name yet. I’ll worry about that later.

A little boy’s mindless act of vandalism made this chest look very sad for a while, but it was fortunately saved with a bit of love and care.

Now it sits proudly next to our couch and serves as a toy chest for our godchildren. It contains everything from picture books, legos, Mr. Bearsie to a train set, and it will continue being a box full of joy until we convert it into a coffee table a few years later.

I tried all sorts of methods existing under the sun to remove vivid from painted wood without causing any damage. I will skip the blah blah and just get down to the point.

The best way to remove permanent marker from a painted wooden surface is with a damp cloth and a tube of toothpaste.
