Soft drink crate

I have not been updating my blog lately and no scrapping done last weekend. Instead I am busy spending my quality time with the family. My other half on the other hand is so helpful and interested in my ATCs...he helped a lot...he even asked "do you want more paint?" (awesome isn't it)

I have also managed to tidy up my scrap room which has been abandoned and the maid is kind enough to wipe all the dust on the table, bottles and everywhere...clean as always.

I have also working on something which is this...I transformed this soft drink crate from this look...


to this


I painted the box and my husband helped me by randomly sprayed the white paint and it doesn't covers perfectly, as you can see in some area there are still wood colours...(as I want to keep that vintage look just a bit)

I store all my mists', acrylic paints', alcohol inks', dimensional pearls', stickles' and I have more colours not only these...oh..I need another crate I think.

I randomly put everything in, just to take photo

here I wrongly store the mist which is upside down...later I put it correctly so that it won't spill

Do you like this? no? Just sharing with you this is how it looks like "how I store some of my favourite things"...

On top of I received 5 parcels, ATCs and some yummy goodies from a good friend...just love all of them.

Thank you for looking.
