I found this box for less than $1. I'm sure before the stains and scratches that it was perfectly beautiful.
I really didn't need a box so my wheels started turning. I decided to take it apart and make two things from one. After taking it apart, I had to fill in the holes from the hinges.
Now that is was disassembled and ready, I painted it with my Old White chalk paint. I made a stencil using my cricut and contact paper and dry brushed on some acrylic paint. To add a little more of a rustic charm, I drilled holes into the sides and tied on some rope.
Now I have a cute little box to house some fresh flowers. Sorry only to show you it without the actual flowers but since I was going out of town I didn't feel that buying fresh flowers would make too much sense. I figure you can envision beautiful hydrangeas.
Hopefully, I can share what I will be doing with the rest of the box soon but I won't make any promises. I will be trying to enjoy my time with the kids before they head off for school again. Hang in there with me:)
