I have been working on the renovation of a couple of boxes for several months now! Can't believe it has taken me so long, but everything keeps taking preference over a little paint job! Well, I just could not take these items hanging around any longer, together with the paint, brushes etc, so yesterday morning, I woke exceptionally early - 2 am! - and after lolling in bed not able to sleep, got up and went through to my work room and my eyes fell on these boxes. I immediately picked them up, got the paint onto the brushes and worked away for half an hour. I had to stop, as I wanted a wire brush and did not fancy groping around Hubs garage so early in the morning, but did resume the job later in the day. I was totally thrilled with the outcome.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for the first time and am totally hooked on that paint!
I have the 'before' and 'after' photo's below, so you can see what I have done.
I bought the boxes from our local Mr. Price Home store and as you can see they were meant for the kitchen.
I have other plans for them so renovation was required!
|I had already stuck the roses onto the box when I remembered|
I wanted to blog this and needed a 'before' photo!
This was obviously a recipe holder.
|I had not worked on this box, so the picture is definitely|
a 'before' one!
|How different with the roses!|
|I love this rose!|
I know that the silver will make a huge difference and I will do that as soon as I can, but for now, the boxes are very usable, and my desk is clear of the clutter - yay! Getting there!
Just something different I thought I'd like to share with you. Also some Noah news! We have a family wedding in June and all my family will be in town. So excited as we will have 4 generations together and the oldest member (my Dad) will meet Noah for the first time! Can't wait. I will be sure to take lots of photo's and place them onto my Noah page. He is 14 weeks old already! How time flies!
Thanks so much for the visit and I hope you enjoyed my 'box' post!
I have lots of cards etc. to blog about, but just need the time to schedule them all.
Hope to see you all again soon.
Hugz and God Bless,
