Hello lovely Friends! I’m back today with a quick little makeover for ya’ll. There’s a thrift store by my Mom’s house that I always stop in whenever I’m out that way. That’s the same store where I found my 99¢ table. When I stopped in there last week, I found a few small things:
The little pitcher was my favorite find. I can always use a pretty white pitcher. All of these were on the clearance…does it get any better than clearance at the thrift store?? (No. The answer is no.)
Today I’m sharing what I did to update the wooden box:
It was marked down to $1.98. I’m sure it was part of a canister set at one time since it still had the brown plastic insert inside. I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use. Read my full disclosure here.
I decided to paint it (You weren’t expecting that were you? 🙂 ), and add a little something to that ceramic oval piece on the front to give it a fresh look:
Doesn’t resemble the dated piece it once was at all now, does it?
I used my Silhouette to cut a stencil out of contact paper for the #2:
I used a small brush and black acrylic paint to paint in the number.
For the box I used Fluff by Dixie Belle Paint. I’m getting a lot of projects done with that one jar!
I waxed with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax to seal.
I lined the bottom with some of the left over toile fabric I used in the drawers of the vintage night tables I shared recently. I just wrapped a piece around a piece of foam core that I cut to fit the bottom, then hot glued it in place.
Easy! This would be perfect for my chocolate stash. My kids would never think to look in there. 🙂
