Trash or Treasure?

Remember this black and grey box?







I was going to store my make up in here but it just didn't fit right on my stand so I'll have to shop for something else.... darn. So now what to do with the box? I decided to paint it with a little character and put it on the dresser in the "Grandchildren's" room.

This used to be Elly's room when she lived here so it will probably always be her room but you can't have favorites so of course I can't have an Elly room without having a Garrett and Mallory room... confused yet?

So the room is getting re-done changing Elly's crib into a daybed (pictures will have to follow soon, it's so cool) and then adding baskets for toys for the different ages of grandchildren, a table for crafting and then the dresser that was once John's as a child and then El's (I think I'm going to paint that white... shhhh let's keep that a secret). Oh yeah the box.... I painted, distressed and added fun whimsical art and distressed some more..... wha-la a fun box to store the grandchildrens colors, glue, cutters, punches, stickers, ect...

Whatca' think?

Love it!!! I think this would have too big for a makeup box anyway. You don't have that much makeup do you?

I saw this in person on Saturday and I forgot to tell you that I loved it! It almost fell in Mallory's diaper bag...
