I sold this embellished recipe box at The Red Apron last month.
And now I am on the hunt for about 1,397 of these bad boys:
I have probably seen about 1,398 of them at garage sales over the years, but it never occurred to me to “pretty them up” until my friend Lynne asked me to paint her grandmother’s recipe box for her daughter a few years ago (see that old post here).
They are so easy to make!
I started out by spray painting both boxes…
I rummaged thru my scrapbooking supplies until I found a buckle for interest….
And called it done.
I think I am fascinated with making “recipe things” because I can’t cook.
Seriously…..this is the only thing I am good for in the kitchen.
Coming soon: posts on “why I haven’t posted lately about running”, our adoption update (please pray) and “so you think you want to own your own business?”.
Talk about being all over the board….
