White Wednesday Project

Boring...is not always bad because it gives you the opportunity to put a spin on it and make it...if you are lucky...a little more interesting.

Remember the boring box we found while junking?

Nice wooden box, oak to be more precise...
Easy surface to transform...
Perfect size for jewelry or secrets...
Affordable, we only paid $4.00 (although after visiting other sites and reading how little you girls pay for your treasures in some other parts of the country, everything sounds expensive to us!!!)

Old white paint came to the rescue once more...and with the help of old hardware, the little wooden box got a whole new look....

Some stain later, distressing and she got a little extra charm....

some vintage music sheet in the inside finished it all off!

Simple transformation, easy project...great satisfaction!

Now go and look for a blank canvas where to express yourself...
and if you need more white inspiration, visit:
Faded Charm, you won't be disappointed!

Oh you guys sure know your stuff. This turned out awesome. I LOVE how you adorned the inside! I have this little box my husband picked up for me at a yard sale and I think if you don't mind, I'll give this makeover a try.
Hugs,
June
