Altered Treasure Cigar Box

So, last Friday night we were kid-free. As a rare opportunity, THE MAN asks what I want to do with my night. Too many left overs in the fridge to go out AND I really want hardware.

I suggest a trip to Lowes.

I know. I know. I need to live it up!!! BUT....

Do you see those white feet peeking out of the bottom?

Those are glass shower door rollers!


I was super excited myself.

And that little gold latch was there too!

Ok, so you can see them better here, the shower roller feet. They are super simple to attach. I couldn't use the fancy smancy ones Tim Holtz has because they wouldn't let my door open....and we all want to open the box to put the treasure inside!

And a quick shot of the back of the cigar box too, so you can see that is even pretty with a vintage article!

Thank you Lisa from Kansas for those awesome hinges! I certainly made good use of them here with the pearl "nails" and the crackle paint!

And, I'm off to the greater wilds of PA! See ya on the flip side!

  6. Well absolutely we want to be able to open the box! I'm sitting here just shaking my head, trying to untie my brain and decipher just the right words to describe yet another MP masterpiece!

  10. Gorgeous work!!

    So you had been shopping eh? No AC Moore here, just Michaels and hobby lobby. It seems like the prices are about the same.

    If you go to Michaels again. There is a 20 percent off coupon at Family Circle. It is worth buying the magazine.

    Talk more soon.
