When we purchased the storage chests for our girls’ playroom we needed an easy solution to touch up the finish.
The chests had a hot pink lacquered finish, which we loved! But they were chipped and had signs of some wear and tear.
Tyler came up with an easy to repair the lacquered finish and it worked great.
After a bit of research and talking to the workers at our local paint store we decided to purchase a simple bottle of nail polish. Actually we purchased 3 bottles in different shades to ensure we got the closest match to our hot pink finish.
First, we wiped the chests with a gentle cleaner to remove dirt and dust. Then used our Magic Eraser to take off all excess smudges.
Once the chest was dry we painted the chipped areas (where the white areas of the chest are visible) with our nail polish.
Two coats of paint sufficiently covered the damage on the chests.
We polished them off with a little car wax and now the chests look good as new!
