Upcycled Goodwill Find


Sometimes when you’re out on a “hunt” for some thrift store awesomeness, you just have to get something even though you don’t know what it is or what in the world you’re going to do with it. That’s what today’s special find was for me.  I found this wood container (if you know what it originally was, please share!) and for under $10, it was way too cool not to get.  I think that it can be pretty multi-purpose, but for sharing with you all, I set it up as a utensil and napkin holder for a fun get together with family or friends. :-)

I bought these label holders awhile back on Amazon and attached them to the front.

I needed to drill small holes because the brads were not nails, but made for a thinner material like cardboard.  Then I used some gorilla glue to keep it all in place, and of course my handy dandy label machine.

I love how they turned out although in hindsight I would probably just use a removeable chalkboard decal or similar. Then when you want to use it for other items (It think charging mobile devices would be perfect!), it’s easy peasy to change the label.

This was a pretty simple project and I can’t wait to use it around the house!
