Show and Tell Thursday

My friend Kim at Simple Needs blog is doing a show and tell Thursday, so I thought I would join her in doing that.

I went to the store the other day, and they sell cheese there. Anyway, they have all the leftover cheese boxes. So I asked if I could have a couple. And sure enough they let me have'em.

I dont have a picture of what they looked like before. I guess I need to get into that habit. Anyway, I have decided to paint them for Halloween and add a few things to them. When I get them finished I will post a picture for y'all.

I think I need to go by there and pick up a few more.

I worked at the grocery store for a few months before I got pregnant with Shane. I actually worked in the dairy :) so I was able to get two cheese boxes! One fell a part and I used the sections from the top and bottom to make signs and oh, this small shelf in the laundry room that I should share :) The other cheesebox I stained oak and it's sitting in my living room :)

Can't wait to see what you're painting on yours!

Well this is the first time I have tried to do anything with a cheese box. I have one coat of paint on them already, and I know they need at least one more. Then Im gonna sand them. I thought about adding some printable pictures to the top for Halloween. We'll see how they turn out. I cant wait to get them finished...

Anytime girl. Right now I have no ink in my printer, so the image I want to add to the box will have to wait. I hate when that happens. I will get a picture added as soon as I can.
