Hi friends, happy Wednesday! I have an awesome upcycle to share with you today that will hopefully inspire you. This project is proof that you can find interesting castoffs at Goodwill and repurpose them into something completely different and useful. Once upon a time, this box proudly held someone’s CDs. It was functional, but far from pretty!
I made it into a beautiful DIY centerpiece in just a couple steps:
First I removed the black plastic holders.
Then I painted the outside of the box in Old White Chalk Paint. One side at a time, I stenciled a design with red and turquoise paint.
When all the sides were painted and dry, I lightly distressed with sandpaper.
Finally I added three large blue mason jars that I got from a yard sale a few weeks ago, and filled them with faux stems from Hobby Lobby.
It’s so pretty – I love it now! Who would ever suspect this box’s former purpose?
Here it is as the centerpiece in my beach-inspired summer tablescape that I shared last week. <3
Is there anything you’ve bought at Goodwill recently and repurposed into something else?
Bonus points for extra creativity! 😉
