When my brother was a little boy (that little boy is now almost 26), he had a toy chest to hold all of his toy tractors & GI Joe soldiers.
In 2006, I decided to save this chest from the heat of the attic and give it a face lift. I changed it from a solid cherry wood color to white. I painted my initials and the quote, "Be young, be foolish, be happy," on it.
From then on, it sat in my room at Mom & Dad's and held all of my high school keepsakes.
When I was home with the parents last week, I decided it was time for another makeover for this trusty chest.
I painted it espresso brown, which is the same color as my bedroom furniture at my place in Charleston.
After it dried, I sprayed it with a paint sealer.
I brought it back to Charleston with me & now use it to hold all of my purses.
Here are the final results!
While I was in my DIY-mode, I decided to organize all of my jewelry. My fashion jewelry had found its way into my fine jewelry box, so I needed to do something about that.
In the office-supply section of a dollar store, I found a wire/mesh pencil holder.
This is how I used it to organize my fashion jewelry:
Problem ... solved!
Hope everyone had a great Monday!
