Everyone Needs a Sambox

30 Minutes
We can repurpose ANYTHING, and it doesn't have to take MUCH! Look around your house, there are things just WAITING to be reclaimed! Like this crate I grabbed for $3.00 at a resale shop. Knew someday I'd do something with it.
Here's my $3.00 crate. Decided my Grand Daughter Samantha needed "something" to put all her books in that are sitting at my house for when she comes over.
I thought cherry red would make it look "inviting" and cover up some of the imperfections, while keeping them imperfect as well.
Add a little "detail" to the outside (used black marker) and started filling it with her books. Who WOULDN'T want to grab a book from here and start reading? ~ Everyone needs their own little "Sambox", don't you think?
