I always need storage for my craft supplies. So last year I bought these wooden nesting boxes at Hobby Lobby....($20.00 for a set of three with the bronze hardware included). Since we don't have a Hobby Lobby anywhere near us I try to pick up everything I think would make a good project whenever we're near one. So sometimes I have a tendency to pick up more than I have time to work on in a year, in a craft frenzy sort of way. You follow me? And then, of course, I feel guilty and overwhelmed when I open up my closets and there's all this stuff just waiting on me.....anyways, there comes a point when you can't fit anymore into the closet and, well, you get the picture. So, it's time to catch up. The good part now is that now I can actually use these to store things out on a shelf. (I'll try not fill up the space they left in the closet.) Okay, so I thought they might look cute made up like old traveling trunks. I used a combo of papers from different Graphic 45 collections that I had left over. I removed only the front hardware and I painted two boxes black and one a raw umber brown wash, after sanding them down with a light grit sandpaper. Then sanded them back a bit when the paint was dry for a little worn look. I fussy cut some of the graphics and and papers for the trim and Mod Podged them on to the boxes. Since I wanted them to stack well on top of each other I kept it simple and left off any further embellishments.
Now I'll sign off and go fill them up! Thanks for looking!
