Trash to treasure tuesday

Did I mention that I love thrift stores and flea markets?

I do

and I have my "bunch" of thrift stores that I visit regularly

A while ago I was lucky and found these two lovelies

And this weekend I finally had the time to sand them down and give them a new look

Now this is Lynn`s new treasure box

And this is mine:

I liked the chest from the moment I discovered it but
when I opened the drawers and saw the compartments
I knew It would be perfect to store my ribbons, bindings and laces!

And I absolutely LOVE those handles!

It is relaxing to know that now I have an other mess free zone in my sewing studio.

Have a nice day


  1. I love your super-organised ribbons. Mine are all just stuffed into a storage box (but at least it does keep them together, which is something!)

  2. Those ar some really great finds. I love what you did with them!

  3. Hi Sandra,
    What wonderful finds and you did a great job sanding them back and then giving them new life.Both look great.

  4. Wow! You are one talented momma! I love the cabinet with all the cubbyholes---I like cubby holes to organize my stuff in. Your header with the fresh bouquet of flowers is beautiful, by the way!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'll have to come " visit" Switzerland again soon! ;-) Hope you have a great day (or evening, maybe?)!

  5. That treasure box is so beautiful. I guess i'll have to visit my nearest store sometime soon as you've just inspired me (yet again!)

  6. Hi Sandra. I love that chest -- the picture of all of your ribbon in the compartments is great! What a wonderful find. I love seeing what people discover at thrift stores :)

  7. Doesn't it feel great to be so organized! and it looks lovely!

  8. Love your revamped treasure chest and those adorable fur babies!

  9. Hi sandra, what a lovely blog you have, especially your kiddy and kitty pics!
    Thankyou for joining my Boudoir Swap, it will be great fun!
    Best regards
    Deborah {fondantkiss}

  10. I love the chest. What a great find and you've done a great job reinventing it.
