Last week when I went picking with Dorothy - I found this box - and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it

another paint storage solution ( it's ridiculous how much paint I have really - and I've had to literally think outside the "box"  because I no longer have a garage.

I painted it white and grabbed those trusty stencils once again - and came up with this

It can hold 16 quart sized tins of paint - 4 waxes - and paint brushes. Not bad for 5 dollars!

And I also found this little table for 5 dollars -

And 100% I took a before photo of this and can't find it anywhere - must have deleted it by accident -
It was typical 60's oak anyway - painted it with ASCP WHITE - and then printed out the laurel wreath from
the Graphics Fairy - and ran as fast as I could ( while the ink was still wet ) and placed it on the surface and rubbed a regular pencil on it like this

you can see the print underneath it quite clearly - I didn't trace this - I just rubbed the pencil against it ( with a lot of force actually )

and ended up with this adorable little table ( my friend's aunt was looking for a small table - think I'll gift it to her..................)
perfect to plunk your purse down or your keys!

And I really have to get started on big pieces - I have so many pieces half finished that I'm feeling totally overwhelmed right now -
I have to methodically pick ONE thing and stick with it till it's done!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday
