An Old Handmade Box Becomes A Cute Display

Posted in January 2013 Newsletter

The last piece that we picked up at Goodwill was this handmade red box for $1.99.  It was already painted and very rustic so we knew we wouldn’t have to do much if anything to make it work in our little boy’s room.

All we did was take a little white paint, and dry brushed it on the outside with some dark charcoal paint, then some white, and applied the wax.    Then we added some hardware and hung it on the wall in our little boys’ room to use as a display.

His room is kind of a teddy bear theme so this was the perfect place to put a little bear on display.

This was super simple and added a lot to his room.

Now, get to your local thrift shop and get creative.  There’s no end to what you can do with a $5 bill and some imagination.
