Welcome to Trash to Treasure on Tuesday!
I hope Mr. Linky works...it wasn't as easy as I thought. LOL
As the old saying goes, "One man's trash in another man's treasure."
In my opinion, a Trash to Treasure is anything that you've bought or had given to you that someone else didn't want and you really like! It could be from a garage sale, thrift store, or a bargain from a retail store. In other words-a thrifty purchase-just use your imagination! If you don't have anything new to share, feel free to link an old post!
I'm going to keep my first post really simple... so here is my Trash to Treasure for this week:
I bought this cute little suit case this past weekend at a yard sale. Since I've started blogging, I have been thinking of different ways to use things. I love the shape of the box and the size, but didn't really care for the car on the front.
So using scrapbook paper, the computer to print a title, and Mod Podge, I redid the top of the suitcase and plan to use it for family photos. The inside is lined with black felt, and large enough for 2 rows of 4 by 6 photos.I am going to cut cardboard for the inside to divide it into two sections. I think it's much cuter than the photo boxes that you buy for photos. Now if I could just run across a few more of these! I need more than one to hold all my pictures!
