First Aid. I feel like I need some! Seriously.
This last week of show prep for the Ruffles & Rust Vintage Market has almost killed me! I am soooo tired, but the end is in sight! Yesterday with the help of a friend I was able to haul about 80% of my stuff to the show location. This morning a different friend will help me with the last 20%, and then we will arrange, tweak, and price. Tonight the sale starts!
But speaking of First Aid…here’s a little project that I finished for the show. Inspired by Homeroad’s First Aid Foot Locker, I turned a beat-up wooden chest into a First Aid box.
I came across this one at an estate sale. I *love* old wooden boxes!
This one’s bottom was hanging loose…I know how that feels…
But it was nothing a few nails couldn’t fix!
I painted the box with a few different whites, creams, and grays for a layered look, then I painted the cross and the lettering with a stencil I made with my Silhouette. The box had had years of oil and grease on it, so it naturally went very “chippy” when I sanded it!
This is actually my second First Aid chest…the first one I made for the Barn Sale in August. I liked it so much that I put what I thought was a pretty steep price tag on it, because I wasn’t sure I wanted it to sell! But alas…someone snatched it away almost immediately!
