I have many many projects around my apartment and the weekends are a great time to get them done. I found this great wooden box (below) at a thrift store for ONE DOLLAR. Obviously when I saw it, I had big plans for it.
This is the box I got, except without the yuppie wooden toy fruit.
I wanted something fun and bright because Spring is coming! I can feel it, I don't care what that little varmint says about his shadow.
I painted the whole thing even though I knew that I was going to put fabric down on the bottom. I gave it two coats.
I got this fabric about 2 years ago at Mood and I've been wanting to use it FOREVER. I thought that it would really make the pink pop. I cut it to fit the little wooden tray and....
Voila! I took a little spray adhesive and did a light layer before laying the fabric down in the bottom of the tray.
I replaced the other wooden tray I have with this fun poppy little one on my coffee table. I'll probably change the display on the inside but we'll see. That's what is fun about a little tray like this: It cost me about 5-6 dollars in the end and if I don't like it after a few months, I can a) carefully repaint it or b) switch it out and bring it back another time. For now I really love it though, it's brightening up my living room and making me think of Spring.
Have a Happy Monday!
