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!


Find new purpose for old things. Don’t throw them out, repurpose! Change them up. Add your own touch to them and make something old new again!
