I found an interesting item at an auction recently. It's an accordion style sewing box. I had never even seen anything like it, but I liked it and bought it thinking I would paint it.
I sanded, primed, painted, and then distressed. It took a lot longer to paint than I thought it would.
Here's how it looked when I bought it.
The inside definitely needed something done to it.
I added some cute paper using Mod Podge. I like it so much better. I almost thought about keeping it since my sewing box a quite a bit smaller.
It is available in our Etsy Shop.
I just love old sewing notions. I got it all with the vintage sewing drawers at a resale shop last year.
My favorite part of the box is the paper inside!
