Unfortunately, I forgot to take a before picture of this chest. Just imagine..... black in color, been sitting in a basement for at least 10 years, sitting in my garage for another 2-3 years, cobwebs, dust, dirt, and dog hair. I spent a couple of hours of washing, drying and even blowing it with the leaf blower before I began to paint.
I have it in my guest bathroom. I am very pleased with the way it turned out and the best part is this was given to me, FREE. I just wish that I had painted it sooner.

1 loaf of Italian Bread
Handful Basil, Chopped (from my garden)
2 Medium Tomatoes, Diced (from my garden)
1 Cup of Shredded Mozzeralla Cheese
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Optional: Chopped Garlic - I did not have any or I would have added some garlic.
Preheat oven to 375°. Slice Italian bread into 3/4" thick slices. Arrange on baking sheet and add 1/2 tsp of olive oil to each piece. Toast bread lightly and remove from oven. Add diced tomatoes, shredded mozzeralla cheese and basil to each piece of bread until bread is mostly covered. Put back into the oven and bake until cheese is melted.
I made this Sunday afternoon and just hit the spot. It was a great way to use some of tomatoes and basil from garden. Let me know if you try it!
