New storage boxes . . . almost done

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been salvaging and making new storage boxes for our entertainment center (honestly, there has to be a better pair of words to describe a tv bookshelf!).  

While I love knick knacks in other people’s houses, I’m a lazy housekeeper and with the equivalent of four great dane puppies living here, it’s just not worth my time.  Still . . . I don’t want to live in an empty, sterile house.  These dumb old banker boxes (pack of 10 at Costco for about $15) are great when painted.  They hold up to about 2 years of hard use and they look nice too.  

When I first did our banker boxes, I went multi-colored and used all kinds of patterns.  This time around, as you can see, I went with black, adorned by a single black and white photo (photo on copy paper and stuck on with a mixture of Elmer’s and water).  I’m really pleased with the result.  

Here is a close-up of one of the boxes.  As you can see, I aged some of the pictures and tore some of them as well so it gives a more “real” feel to the project.  Your mileage may vary.
