Sewing, Refashioning, Repurposing & Thrifting Through Life

Pretty Little Thrifted Storage Box

on April 20, 2016

I’m making a commitment to try and post more. Hopefully I can stick with it! Just a quick post on a few little thrifted items I picked up recently.

This storage box. It was originally a dark red wood. All I did was apply a couple of coats of chalk paint and clear wax.


The box sits on a dresser in our front hallway. The top is meant for a portrait of some sort. I don’t know what I’ll put in there just yet so I printed off this little quote for now.


It’s great for keys, workplace security passes and just odds and ends. Out of sight! Literally.

    Oh thank you. Good luck in your search. I am seeing a rise in prices in general at thrift stores on almost everything, unfortunately. The words and the image are actually just a picture I printed off the internet but etching the glass would be really cool too!

    I Love the box, and the poem!
    I have recently repainted two thrifted jewelry boxes, and find myself on the prowl for more….however, I see a drastic increase on the cost of them at my usual shops.
    Btw, did you etch or paint the words onto the glass?
