I'm late to the party, but I made it!!! After Plan A and Plan B didn't work out, I happily decided on Plan C which is this wonderful pin from In My Own Style by Diane. I love these colorful boxes!
And I had a real need for some organization as evidenced by my button collection below:
I had buttons in all sorts of containers, in different places. I rounded them up and came up with a plan that involved this Tony Hawk shoe box and the gingham fabric it is resting upon:
A quick coat of spray primer:
And then I covered it using Diane's very helpful tutorial:
I loved embellishing it! I used the selvage edge of some ticking and vintage rickrack.
I added a sweet little chalkboard heart tied on with more ticking selvage that hints at the contents:
And inside the box is super user friendly button storage!
Each little cup / bucket houses a separate color of button and can easily be removed for whatever project I am currently working on:
I have to laugh though- this project contains a lot of similarities to my last project- the Valentine's Box! Completely unintentional, but amusing none-the-less!
Thank you so much to Young House Love, Bower Power, The Remodeled Life and Decor And The Dog for getting me to actually attempt one of my pins! A great exercise in getting something done!
Hugs to all!
