Boxex, boxes, boxes

OK, so I have been working on lots and lots of stacked boxes and if the weather would just cooperate (think QUIT RAINING) I might get the varnish to dry soon !!! Hahaha. But seriously, I am trying to get things on to show you all, but I have been hampered by the weather and my own laziness.

Ok, so here are some of the boxes...
I have one more to add to this set making it 6 boxes in all. Haven't decided yet whether to add painted stars or maybe some advertising logo's...what do you think ????
These one I am just thrilled with how these 3 oval boxes turned out so far...I am planning to stencil the words (starting with top box) Life, Liberty, Happiness.....I was going to list these for sale, but I know I will be keeping them for sure...GRRRR, at some point I need to let go of some of this stuff !

 And finally, here's a cure little recipe box I picked up at the thrift store for .49... I think the only thing I will add is a little knob right in the center...Wont that be darling ?

I hit a few estate sales yesterday and got some awesome wool to recycle, TONS of old bottles that are just begging for some vintage labels (next weeks project), an old colonial fireplace bellow and a bunch of candles that are screaming to be all grubbied up...Dont you just love how all these items "talk" to me...they are like kids, just begging and screaming...LOL

Tomorrow I hope to be able to post the pics of a GORGEOUS shelf I redid the other day...again, it's still tacky because of all this rainy weather, but I just LOVE it...So nice. OH, and I will be posting my May giveaway by the end of the's a nice one !!!

Until then,


  1. Ooooooh, the knob on the lid? that would be so nice. I love when you put the labels on. Where do you get your labels?

  2. They are all awesome and yeah Im sick of the weather too holding me up on a lot of projects as well ! Cant wait to see the boxes finished the oval ones are adorable. enjoy your day hugs

  3. Margie,
    I agree with you, the items seem to speak to us. (take me home, take me home)I think your ideas are great. Can't wait to see the finishes. I too am wondering about labels. I have some things that could use some tweaking with labels.
    Until next time

    Love the little box you bought just the way it is. I'm trying to resist those little voices that say "take me home, I want to go with you". So far it's working, but not sure how long I can hold them off. LOL

    Enjoy your day~Becky

  5. We've been junking and junking some more.Found a lard can like I saw you post with my soap box and bought it.I loved yours so happy I found it.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  6. Hi Margie,
    Your boxes all turned out great! I think advertising logo's on the square ones would be nice. Yes a knob on the recipe box would set it off.
    I haven'y found any good junk to turn into treasures yet. I must be looking in the wrong places. Yardsales are just starting to pop up around me so hopefully I'll find some good makeover items soon.
    Thank you for sharing all your goodies with us.
