Happy Easter Monday everyone, and sorry Wendy but I will not be showing any Easter makes although I have been busy with making Easter Cakes and Hot Cross Bun's.
I have decided to show you this W.I.P instead.
And if you're wondering what I'm going on about visit Wendy's blog and join in the fun.http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/

I bought this at a carboot sale to store some of my wooden stamps in and have been meaning to paint and pretty it up for a while. To be honest it isn't very practical really for my wooden stamps but I can use it to store / display lots of embellishment's like flowers etc.
What better time than the long Easter Weekend to get on with it!!!
One problem though that I am dreading however, is assembling it all back together - I am NOT good at that and worst of all I went out to the garage (my HUSBAND'S garage!!!! - he says's it's the one place he can call his own and helped myself to a few tools in order to take it all apart. I was very careful that nothing else was moved as hubby seems to have EAGLE EYE'S. so you can imagine I become very fidgety if he hovers around to see what I'm doing. He is very PRECIOUS about his tool's!!!)

Also I have to tell you that one of the "makes" I did was published / featured in the "Simply Homemade" magazine that I love. Only in the "your letter's" section with a photo about the make! Do you think I can be cheeky enough now to add to my side-bar "I've been featured in." What do you reckon?

Do you know I have never been to a carboot and not sure I would have thought about redecorating the box but it looks so pretty.

I can see an early start to next weekend!

Susie said...

What a nifty idea, to redecorate! I understand about husbands and their tools. :) And yes, you should trumpet your accomplishment, getting published like that, it's outstanding! WTG. :)

I've one of those boxes and it's very empty, brown and boring! I'm wondering whether i've the energy to revamp mine! Looking forward to seeing it put back together.

I am with you on the finickity hubby over tools!! I have my own tool box because of it and I keep it locked so he cannot borrow my stuff!! LOL!! I just hate it when I pick his tools up when I am fixing my pushbike and it is covered in something yukky!!
I love this box and would be soooo tempted to decorate it like you are doing!! Are we gonna see it finished?b
