Hey there, beautiful friends and welcome to Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday! There is little I love more than transforming junk into jewels, and today, I’m being joined by my talented friends who also have makeovers to share! Be sure to look for links to their projects at the bottom.
I’m especially excited about today’s makeover because it is the FINAL PIECE from my Spring 2022 Haul!!
I saved this one for last because honestly, I wasn’t very inspired by it at all.
I decided to pair it with this cigar box to create something new altogether:
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I figured I could use the cigar box to create a pocket on the front:
To do that, I started by removing the back of the cigar box and whacking the bottom of it out:
Then I got to painting! I gave both pieces two coats of Fluff:
Once they were dry, I used E6000 Glue (They now have a no-stink version!!) to attach the cigar box to the front to create that pocket:
I left that to dry overnight.
Then, I pulled out my Classic Vintage Labels mini transfer set and added the perfect one to the front:
This transfer comes with a bunch of mini transfers that are perfect for smaller projects like this!
You can see 10 more mini makeovers using this transfer set HERE.
I gave the edges a little extra sanding with 220 grit sandpaper to distress a bit. The final step was to seal, and I did that with Best Dang Wax in clear.
Here’s how this unlikely pair look now!
The flowers could easily be changed out seasonally, or you could even use it for incoming mail.
I love how it turned out!
Do y’all remember the basket?
It’s one that I just had to keep. It started out like this:
And I shared it as part of this Painting the Smalls post.
It sneaks its way into my photos every so often.
How about the chair?
I shared that one HERE, and it started out like this:
Not so cute there lol. So much better now!
I share this in my photos all the time!
Altogether, they make a sweet vignette!
I hope enjoyed seeing what these pieces could be!
Don’t forget to check out my friends’ Trash-to-Treasure makeovers at the links below!
And that’s another haul complete!! YAY!!!
SO satisfying to cross that final piece off the list!!
Here’s everything in this haul:

I’ve already started collecting my next haul but still need a few more things, so I’ll be shopping this week and hope to reveal that soon!
Meanwhile, meet me back here on Thursday to see what I did to revive this:
UPDATE: See how I turned it into a real cutie here now!
