XL Flatware Box Makeover

Hello amazing friends!! If ya'll have followed me for any length of time at all, you know I have a hard time passing up a few things. One of them is old flatware boxes. Imagine my delight when I happened upon the mother of all flatware boxes at the thrift store by my Mom's house a few months ago! I should have put a soda can in the picture so you could appreciate how huge this thing is! It is over two feet wide. It was $9.98 and immediately went into my cart. I've included a few … [Read more...]

Flatware Box Makeover

Hello lovely Friends! If you read about my big purge not too long ago, you may remember this photo: This was a pile of things I decided to keep, figuring I could still do something with them. Three of those items are flatware boxes, you know the kind that fancy silverware comes in? I decided to start at the top of the pile with this $3 thrift store flatware box: I rarely pass up one of these boxes if they're in good shape. Because... They make perfect jewelry … [Read more...]

Mini Chest Makeover

Hey there, my awesome Friends! I missed ya'll on Thursday! I had a great long weekend, but I'm pretty sure I went up a pant size. I ate a half a batch of chocolate chip cookies myself. In one night. (And they were totally worth it.) Now it's time to get back to work stocking my booth for the Holidays, so I can pay for all the things I bought on Black Friday. No I didn't go out and fight crowds...I found all kinds of great deals online this year! My kind of shopping! I told you last week … [Read more...]

Romantic Flatware Box Makeover

It seems like there are a couple of items that I just can't seem to pass up when I go thrifting. One of them is frames, and the other is flatware boxes. It wouldn't be March Madness if I didn't share a bit of both. Today's makeover my sweet Friends, #21...can you believe it??, is this flatware box I picked up for $5: I loved the curvy lines. How could I not shove this in my cart immediately for only $5? I decided to give this one a bit of a romantic feel: And for the romance … [Read more...]

Stinky Gross Flatware Box Makeover

I really just could not think of a more befitting name for this post. I found this flatware box at the thrift store for just under $5. Here it is as I found it: Ooh good find, right? There are so many possible uses for  a little chest like this... Except it needed a little TLC: Ok a LOT of TLC. So gross. It smelled so musty and yet I brought it home anyway for $5 more dollars than I should have. I would never have had the nerve to donate this! But luckily for me, someone … [Read more...]
