Last year my sister gave me a shelf-full of cigar boxes. Her roommate paints designs on them and sells them in her shop.
Finally I've done something with one of the boxes...I'm such a scared-y cat in crafting with them. I've been afraid to alter it since it looks vintage in its original form (is it sacrilegious to the vintage trend to "un-vintage" something? lol).
...but since they are just sitting on a shelf as basically a dust collector...its time to muster up some creative backbone and just do it!
Starting out, I created a Pinterest Board, which is turning into my modus operandi. How can I craft without first making a board? lol
Next, assembled a few items already on hand and then made a shopping list for the rest.
Finally, straightening into my crafting backbone, I Mod Podged Belle onto the front of the box...after the initial dab of sealer it was a breeze from there. Just had to get the ball rolling.
Not Pictured: added a note card with our wi-fi password
A small basket worked fine since most bathroom supplies are already in the bathroom (thankful for open shelving!)
This was my favorite find for the basket. Its in the travel-sized section at Walmart.
Nothing terribly fancy but a little "something" to make our guests feel welcome.
It'll be fun to add to this...magazines, lotion, etc.
How do you make guests feel welcome?
