Another cutlery box transformed

A while ago I bought 2 ugly cutlery boxes at the thrift store and painted and distressed them to serve as storage for Sofia's knick knacks and hair clips. 
I made one in white and the other in pink.
But for a while now I have added blue elements to her room, as she started loooving blue!
The other day I found this small cutlery box and I knew what colour  it was going to be painted ..,yes, blue.
I love the 3 colours together
Here it is...before
During...I used Krylon spray paint 
Before sanding...
 After after!:)

A cute detail of her room, as you can see, lots of blue:)

  5. Beautifully done. I love this about decorating...particularly decorating over time, elements come together. Ideas morph into better ones. It's a lovely process.

    I want a cutlery box. I just have to say. I've never seen one at my local thrift store...I think I need to expand my thrifting horizons. (= Have a wonderful day. Lynaea @

    1. Thank you! I also LOVE to hunt for thrifty treasures ,love to save $$ this way:) And we always find things out of the box, uh?

      Oh, I ALWAYS find cutlery boxes in my thrifty stores ( we have 3 in my area). Next time I find one will think of you:)

      But keep looking for some in your local store or yard sales, I am sure you will find one!
