Do you enjoy transforming inexpensive thrift store finds into something more suitable to your taste? Well, I seem to have found a liking to it myself lately, so here I am today to show you my latest project. And yes, this is going to be another picture laden post.
The first item I transformed was this practical yet boring desk caddy/organizer made of a light colored wood that I found at my local Salvation Army Thrift Store for $4.00.
Pretty boring in appearance but I knew it had lots of possibilities. So after digging through my ever growing stash of pretty scrapbook papers I chose a couple of the patterned scrapbook papers that I knew would be the perfect choice to give it the look I wanted.
Once I chose the papers I wanted to use, I used some coordinating craft paint to paint the areas that wouldn't be covered by the paper. After the paint dried, I cut the papers to size and got out my big bottle of Modge Podge and a sponge brush and started gluing the papers in place.
And Voila... The end results...
A fun and easy project and I love the more antique and distressed look it has now. Much more suitable to my taste. Next up will be the transformation of this plain but nice wood box..
Stay tuned to see how this gets transformed.
Until then, stay cool...
