Trash To Treasure

So, I wanted to share with you another before and after. (I love these!) I enjoy finding 'stuff' and turning it into something pretty again! This is a train case that I found at the flea market for $3! How could I resist! It was a bit musty so I placed a couple of rather over-powering votives in there and kept it shut for a while(unlit candles of course!) I decoupaged torn paper all over using Modge Podge, boy that stuff is awesome! Then I lined the inside, and also used some Stampin' Up rub-ons on the mirror. Don't you think this makes a nice sewing box?

(Please be patient as I am still working on my photo editing skills!)

Hey Angie!
I love what you have done with that old musty train case! What are you going to use it for now that it's too nice to just store junk in it?

Wow what a transformation. I wouldn't have given it a second look. Great project :O)

I know Kathy! I am almost afraid to use it which is crazy! I am thinking that I will use it as an extra sewing box, you know, the one that goes with me all over the house where I drop the many projects I am working on!

Becky, when you go thrifting and junking, always look under the tables! That's where all the good stuff is! It's usually covered in dust or other stuff but rummaging will yield the treasures! Just this weekend i found a very dusty, very cheap vintage metal file folder (pink of course!) It was all rusty on top but I did another decoupage and it is cute! $3 again!!!
