Bookmark Box

This week I did something that has been on my bucket list forEVER. I gave a facelift to a little tin box that we keep our bookmarks in. I think it turned out pretty cute.

In our family reading is super important - not just for my kids, but for myself. It honestly helps me keep my sanity. If I can read for a while each night, I can handle just about anything.

I'm always encouraging my kids to read - these last few weeks of summer I've been a little bit slack with later bedtimes than normal. But with school starting soon, we're trying to get back in the routine. 

We always have bookmarks laying around. I realized that this tin was the perfect size to corral them and since then this has been their home. However, I never really liked the lid. It's just not my style. 

Here's a look at the before:


A couple quick coats of spray paint and a simple quote on top, and I'm wondering why I didn't do this sooner.

Now it doubles as decor on my bookshelf.
