White Box Transformation

My sister, Beth found this box for me at a garage sale. She could see it's potential and thought I would love this little white box. She was right. It didn't take me long to figure out exactly what I was going to do with it...

I just used pliers to take out the handle and then the little nails were popped out on both sides so the stars and snowflakes could come off. I liked it white so there was no painting involved in this little project. I just purchased some Scrabble letters for $2 on Etsy and super-glued the word DREAM to the box.

It now sits on the bookshelf in my computer/craft/blog spot and I love it! It holds blank note cards and envelopes. Never underestimate the power of a wooden box, right? Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, life is but a dream.

Happy Tuesday!

Nice littel transformation there. I wonder if I could have come up with something so simple

I love how simple and inspiring this little box is. That original wood and paint color is just gorgeous! Now I want one.

This box was originally from a Christmas collection at Pier 1 Imports. I used to be in retail management there and remember these boxes! In fact, I used to have one myself.:) I like your update to it though!

I love how you put scrabble letters on it. So simple but beautiful.

What a great Idea to place the scrabble tiles on the box, did you just paint the box or did you also sand the box as well?

I like this minimalistic transformation! Using the Scrabble letters was a great idea...
