Some Stuff for Savannah

Yeah, you know the drill. Totally trash worthy boxes that have some life left.
 
And patching the corners with clear duct tape? Not rocket science.

 
Spray painting the bottoms and tops in coordinating blues? You have that T-shirt.
 
The peanut canister is new...
Plastic primer, coordinating colors, hot glue, shells, and my daughter has some fun new storage pieces. For more detailed instructions, fade back to HERE. And frankly, I just love this version.

Thank you, Mel. Teenagers can never have enough ways to corral their stuff. Now the boys want their own organizers. Where's the trash can...

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

I love how you recycled ugly boxes to be something really pretty & functional! I wish I hadn't recycled mine (literally in the bin last week) I wonder if a shoe store would give up some leftover boxes?? I am glad I didn't buy decorative boxes or baskets yet! Is there anything better than spray paint & cute dollar store embellishments?

Fawnda said...

Very pretty! I love the shells!

I have a rather large, old red hat box and your post gave me the idea to recover it.. or rather paint it! Your re-do is really nice..

Hi Sandy,

Thanks for popping by my blog. I did some hat boxes a few months ago, they're right here:

Love the beachy feel of your new storage boxes! I would've never thought of that!

Becolorful said...

You rock the Pretty Packages. Spray paint and your embellishments = great look. Hmmmmm pretty sure I have some old boxes laying around just waiting to be changed up.
