Updating an 80s curio cabinet for stamp storage

I visited my local Good Will this morning, and found a wonderful solid wooden standing box. I believe it was for curios or small knick knacks. I instantly saw a wonderful $2.99 stamp holder!

I sanded it lightly and removed the heart-shaped decoration on the top and sanded that spot down. I didn’t spend a lot of time on that spot because I knew it would be covered with washi tape and a stamp. I wanted this to be a FAST project!

I took a can of spray paint I had left over from when I painted an Ikea Raskog cart. I did two light coats, front and back.

Then I took some washi tape (you know I love my washi tape) and added a few stripes to make it even cuter.

Finally, here it is, in its new role as the holder of my wooden stamps!
