This vacation has been all about ticking things off of a long boring to do list, such as...
It's okay, we livened it up with doctor's appointments, getting kids in college, having the cars collision inspected, and having the house termite treated.
But also on my list is a lot of clean up and storage, for which I've been saving boxes and containers.
Which has been driving my mother crazy.
So we'll just haul them out in batches and give them all 3 light coats of Rustoleum apple green.
We're using nothing more exciting than a straight sided beer box, a cookie tin, and the box Sam's new enameled pot came in. I removed all the guts and unnecessary cardboard.
A little hot glue and some coordinating ribbon trim...
...and we have new containers for the kitchen for almost free.
The tab closure on the biggest box is disguised with a bow that's simply a smaller loop hot glued around a larger loop.
Now pardon me, I have stuff to hide.
A lot of stuff.
