Trash to Treasure

I got this little box for free. Not the best picture but generally looking not so hot. I have been needing a new home for some of my garden gloves and other things that collect on the back porch. So I pried off the cracked little pot and plastic foliage, removed the handle and sanded the whole thing down. Then just repainted with some fun green paint, whitewashed a little over the top to give it some depth and put the handle back on with some new twine. Tada! First paint project complete! 
On another note, I got a new laptop that is compatible with my SD card for my camera so you may be seeing more posts with pictures! Happy weekend everyone!


  1. What a cute box!!! You did a great job. You could also try a few stamped flourishes??? (Use acrylic paint instead of ink and wash your stamps off fairly quickly) I know you like your stamps!!! Looking forward to your picture taking! debbie

  2. Awesome! I love this project. And congrats on the new lap top!
