Empty teabox gets a new life

Several Christmases ago I received a teabox from my mom.  It wasn’t fancy, it was a plain wooden box, and once it was empty it looked useful for storing small stuff.  So I kept it.  I used to store beads, trinkets, rocks and whatever odd was laying around and had no home of its own.

About a month ago I decided to give it a facelift.  It deserved it.

After two coats of paint, pretty paper and modpodge you wouldn’t know this box used to be plain.

It now holds different ‘trinkets’: necklaces, pins, matchboxes and other little things I’ve made.
