My $2 Garage Sale Box turned Face Painting Kit!

Post by Gretchen on Thu Sep 19, 2013 9:55 pm

I have been so inspired by all of you who turn empty boxes into cool kids!! I just finished re-making a box I got at a garage sale for $2 into a cool tabletop face painting kit with built in display board!  It was so much fun to work on...I'm super excited to try it out now.  



Check out my blog post if you'd like to see more progress photos of what I did. I'm thinking I'll probably have tweaks to make to it once I use it at an actual gig. But, here it is all sparkly and clean before it's first test!

I like both. but I have a thing for weird off boxes. I would find tons of things to put in there, before you changed it up. Very Happy

but it looks great

Nice job! I love the lights! (How'd you do that?)

I kind want one of those 'before' ones for balloons, or gems, or splitcakes or sock & undies...

Oh Krissiemarie, maybe it's good we're separated by the Mississippi river, we may have tangled, if dear Gretchen hadn't gotten to the garage sale first!
