My sons needed some toy storage in their Minecraft themed room so I decided to put together an easy Minecraft chest. I previously had decorated this chest for the outer space room that never really happened so I just decided to repaint it. This made the project a bit easier. Overall it was simple, but I wince a bit to paint a piece of furniture to make it look ugly… haha. I usually take such pride in my furniture redos, but an authentic Minecraft chest isn’t really Feng shui.

- Painter’s tape
- Spray Paint: Rustoleum 2x Satin Warm Caramel
- Black paint for touch ups
- Silver paint, a silver paint pen, or you could use duct tape
I setup a tarp and my large Homeright Spray Shelter in the backyard to paint. The shelter allows me to paint outdoors without the wind blowing grass and other stuff all over my furniture. It’s a nice perk! Thanks Homeright for sending me a shelter to try out!
As you can see, the stickers caused some paint to peel off from the original piece so we sanded that area down. I should have done a slightly better job but it ended up looking fine after I did a couple layers of my spray paint.
I did a couple layers of the Warm Caramel spray paint. This was after one coat.
Once that was done, I wanted to add a faux silver latch like the game chests have. I think duct tape or silver paint might work. Or you can use a rectangular cut of permanent vinyl. I used a paint pen in silver. I found the midpoint of the chest and marked it, then I used a rectangle item to trace.
There’s my outline.
I filled in the rectangle with my silver paint marker.
