If you ever see a box like this out thrifting, grab it! Maybe this small flip will inspire you to bring it home.
I'm not sure what it was, I think someone said maybe a box that held old shoe shining products at one point? Here's the before.
Regardless, I cleaned it up. Here's the 1 min video to see it go down HERE.
Then I let it dry and distressed with a coarse sandpad.
I didn't seal it since it's just going to sit there and look super pretty as part of my Christmas decor, but this would have been a great candidate to seal in our Monkey Shine since it's old wood that would love that hydration and seal! (I can always add it at anytime down the road!) This sealer is our oil/wax finish.
I think it's perfect and rustic and will fit in great with my thrifted decor this season!
Happy Holidays! xo Sonia
