While visiting my folks over the 4th of July, I came across this old wooden box on their property. I Loved it for it's rustic look and cute little handles on the sides.
Apparently, it was once used to house Bee's. It even had a thick layer of honey residue on the inside, or at least that is what I think it was.
It didn't have a bottom to it, so I had my dad put one in. I had so much fun hanging out with my dad in his humongous shop. He's a retired contractor so he has every tool imaginable. All of his tool tables are hooked up to a huge vacuum to clean up all of the sawdust. I can definitely say If we lived closer I would be in there playing all day long.
I loved that he put in a old piece of wood that matched the rest of the box.
Here is my Abby dog checking it out, she has to be involved in everything!
I gave it a quick, light layer of white paint. I wanted it to still look old and rustic, so I made sure it wasn't covered to well.
And then I sanded it all down with my hand sander, making sure to get all of the edges really good.
Same goes for the inside.
I then brought it into my living room to hold extra pillows and blankets.
Although, I think it may end up in my closet to hold shoes. I could fill the box up and then let some heels hang over the edges.
Aren't these little denim ones cute? I picked them up from Target the other day for $5. Yes, you heard right, I said $5!! So if you want a pair too, You better hurry over.
