Made by ME Monday!

An Old Pharmacy Box
____________________________
I found these great metal boxes at the thrift store the other day.
I paid $1 for each of them!



I worried for a minute that they might be antiques... probably not.
(Well, if they were...they're not anymore!)



I scrubbed the labels off...


spray painted them... I LOVE Krylon!



While they dried, I gathered my supplies...



stained them a little to look distressed and sanded the edges a bit...

mod podge on some cute paper to the center. Sand the edges of the paper.


add some super cute ribbon...

and VIOLA!

I am not sure what I'm going to use them for yet, but I think they turned out pretty darn cute! Happy Monday!

You could always use them to hold flowers, or decorate for a party.... or use as a gift box when birthdays roll around...kind of like gift baskets. Ok, I am all ideas so I will stop now. Super cute and fantastic job. :)

Robin said...

They are absolutely adorable. What are you using them for now?

Maureen F. said...

Those turned out so cute - I have some metal file drawers that I have been waiting to paint - great distressing

Jessica said...

I think those boxes would make really great keepsake or shadow boxes! You could always put a sheet of hard clear plastic in front of whatever you put inside, that way your shadow box can have a nice pop open cover to open before you can actually see whats for display inside.

Love these...they came out so cute! Years ago I found some ammunition boxes from one of the wars, but I don't what ever happened to them; I think they got lost in one of my moves! Oh, well...it happens!
Love your blog.

I’ve been searching on the web trying to find ideas on how to get my personal blog site coded, your present style and theme are wonderful. Did you code it your self or did you recruit a coder to get it done for you personally?.
