Fun little project

I love taking a inexpensive item from Goodwill and making it cute. That is my idea of fun. I found a little wooden tote at Goodwill for $2.99 and knew I could make it adorable!


So I am cheating a little on the adorable factor with the kittens added to the project. :)

It started out as a dark wooden box.


Then I added some white paint on the outside...pink on the inside.


Added some of my new favorite thing french water slide decals (you can get them here.)


Add some flowers,  it looks so pretty!


Add some kittens,  it is nothing short of adorable!




I am really happy with this little wooden tote!


Thanks for visiting!

Another winner! You're making me want to get some of those water decals. The little kitties are so cute in the tote. How on earth did you get them all to pose for those pictures? You're the Anne Geddes of kitty pictures!

That little wooden box was quite a find, and you've given it a fresh new life. I especially love that you painted it pink on the inside. It's adorable with the kittens piled in. Good job, and great photographs.
Blessings!

The little tote box turned out so cute! The kittens are growing so fast (due to your loving care), that soon they will be too big to all fit in a little space like the box.

I love your wooden box, that is a great transformation.
Your kittens are so cuddly and cute.
It will be nice to see how many kittens can you fit in that box next month..
I love your sweet post.
