magpie monday :: OLD WOODEN BOX

I popped into town for the first time in weeks last week and I was on a mission ... I have been making my stand and looking for display items for some craft fairs I have coming up and was looking for something for my jewellery ... I spied this box in one of the antique shops in town ...

it was really filthy, but full of rustic charm and only £10 ... mum and I carried it all the way home ... it only just fit under our arms!

I brushed it out and wiped it down and while I was painting my tree for my little owl display, I gave the box a wash of grey too ... it perfectly fits in with the rest of my display now and all I have to do is add some little tiny cup hooks to hang jewellery from.

Please pop over to MissieLizzie's blog to see more great bargains and links to other MagpieMonday's.


  1. Oh that's lovely. I'm a sucker for old wooden boxes, I bet your jewellery will look beautiful in there.

    Sorry I haven't been able to get a post up today - crazy busy weekend x
