Its ROCC Instasale Time

Yep, lots of fun yesterday getting ready for the Reclaimologists Instasale on Instagram.

One of the projects I chose was this old wood box ... I found it at a yard sale this summer.  I love these old shop projects, they are so carefully made ... and this one even had the name of the boy and the date, 1928, that it was made.

I painted it, striped it, distressed it and lined it with polkadot paper.  Perfect for our Christmas Theme, don't you think?

Of course the finishing touch is an old post card that I found on Graphics Fairy, which is probably about the same vintage as the box!

To the right is the writing that is in the lid, now covered by paper ... pretty cool eh?

Below is the collage I put together for the instasale posting.  If you are on instagram, be sure to check out Reclaimologists and Other Crafty Chicks today ... there will be lots of fun, crafty and Christmasy stuff for sale.

  1. Oh, I do love that box. Red and white stripes will catch my eye any time...any place. That combination gives me so much happiness. It's perfect! Wish I did instagram, but I have a hard enough time keeping up with it's my only social network at this time.
