Hi All! I cannot believe that August is more than half way over. I am not ready for the holiday’s, they are creeping up way to fast. I haven’t even started on holiday projects yet, I have gotten stuck on painting everything the farmhouse style, like how to update a hanging box in 4 easy steps.
I found this cute little hanging box at the thrift store for $1.99 and just couldn’t pass it up. That’s my kind of price, I’m cheap. Just ask the hubby! But I think of myself as being frugal not cheap. If it’s more than a few dollars or I can make it myself I will not buy it.

Since this little box is going to my craft booth I am going to add some pretty flowers. To do this I am going to use an empty can because I didn’t have a jar that would fit.
I wrapped some 3” burlap ribbon around the middle of the can, then hot glued it in place.
Next, I added a few pebbles to help hold the flowers in place, then added the flowers.
Now I have some cute farmhouse style décor. What do you think of the little box. How would you have painted it?
