A couple of weeks ago when I was endeavouring to make a dent in the mess that is our garage I spied these old wooden nail boxes filled with dirty old car parts, tools etc... I instantly thought that they would make cool vintage looking storage inside my home somewhere rather than decaying amongst rusty greasy car parts. So I pulled them out and gave them a good scrub and also treated them for borer.
I then spent a couple of afternoons and nights covering the insides with some pretty scrapbook papers with each box having a different colour theme. It was a bit like choosing the fabrics for a quilt and it probably took as long to choose the perfect collection of papers for each box as it did to glue them on.
The pink/green one.
A brown/blue/green/pink one.
A blue/green one.
And my favourite, the blue/yellow one. I just love the designs on these papers.
And this is the last box which is not a nail box but an old soft drink bottle box. For this one I used papers with text and an autumn colour theme.
Now if you are wondering what I may be using these boxes for you will have to wait for my next post.
Sorry to keep you in suspense :-)
