Happy Thursday, amazing friends, and Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans! Today’s makeover isn’t patriotic inspired, but I did include a fun one from the past at the bottom for you! 🙂
Today I’m sharing a piece that I found on clearance at the thrift store…is there anything better? Why yes there is, actually! How about a double markdown at the thrift store? The box I’m sharing today was marked down not once, but two times!
I knew this little box had potential:
And it really was marked down twice!
They were really pushing it asking $7 to start! I found it on one of Nancy and my thrifting trips a while back.
It got a simple makeover…
Who couldn’t use a box to hide their secret stash?
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
Then I used my Silhouette to cut out the word Hello on contact paper…
I used a small brush and black craft paint to fill it in.
Well hello to you too!
Then I added a little glass knob from Hobby Lobby…
And printed out a tag for the front using the Veteran Typewriter Regular font…
I guess it’s not so secret though if I put that right on the front, eh?
My Hubby was curious what exactly I was suggesting with ” Secret Stash”.
Well, mine would be chocolate, of course!
I lined the inside with fabric using Mod Podge:
I lined this box the exact same way as I lined this flatware box HERE.
Simple, but definitely better than the original, don’t you think?
And here’s that patriotic-inspired makeover I promised! I shared this birdhouse makeover way back in 2015:
It was originally a Christmas church, but it was awkwardly tall, so I altered it a bit, gave it a new paint job, and attached it to a stake in my garden! You can see more of this makeover HERE!
That’s one more done woohoo!
Want to see more upcycled boxes??
I have 12 more for you!
See how they all turned out HERE!
I’ll be back on Tuesday with my Trash-to- Treasure girls sharing how I revived this stool that was a super old project of mine:
UPDATE: See how sophisticated this stool looks now HERE!!
Have a safe and FUN Fourth of July!!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
