So when I saw this old gross cassette holder from the 80's, that was about to go in the garbage, I had to take on the task of making something useful & possible decorative out of it.
The inside of the Brown fake wood Storage unit-there were tons of little cubbies for the cassette tapes, not functional for anything I could think of.
SO I decided to use pliers and pull out every other one, and then some I pulled out 2-3 at a time, allowing for more space between slots.
Then Painted white- sanded out the edges as much as I could to give it the shabby look.
Once it was all white, with some roughed up edges, and differ. sized slots for misc. items, I added a mixture of knobs, some vintage metal-small wood- larger wood, and vintage wood ones all I painted black and slightly roughed them up .
And here you go, my little box with tons of storage for screws-bolts-washers- buttons-crystals-push pins,glue sticks-red hots (one of my favorite candies), what ever you want and with convenient drawers for easy clean-organized storage of those little minis.
Now days, I see beauty in every single thing, Going to an Estate Sale today instead of going inside or to the garage or garden area I headed to the area that looked like garbage, much more challenging, making something out of nothing, especially like this one here, I grabbed it right before it was tossed into garbage..
Now a cutie for all my little things-that get lossed in my sewing tackle box.
