Quick Change

Is anyone else excited about getting back on the trail of Estate sales and garage sales??  It’s been a slow start here so far, but I picked up a couple bargains last week.  I just couldn’t pass up this $4.00 sewing box because my mom has one just one just like it: IMG_0590

A coat of purple spray paint made the plastic fake wood a little more bearable!IMG_0599IMG_0605IMG_0602

I’ve been on the look-out for a container for all my embroidery supplies and threads, and this box was just what I needed! Plus, it was much cheaper than the wooden spool holders and keeps all the thread protected.


It even had the plastic tray that rests on top to hold bobbins, needles and notions!  I covered the inside of the lid with a scrap of tiger fabric to cover the ugly faux velvet that was there.

  1. Oh my stars, this one made me chuckle - I *love* it!!! Purple is SUCH an unexpected color for a piece like that - its just awesome! Makes me smile every time I see it.... and shouldn't most of our "stuff" be that way?!?! Awesome eye, that color is perfect!

  2. So much style for one little sewing box. How fun is that purple. Now that is a color I haven't tried yet.
