Army Crate Makeover

My father-in-law used to work in a convent. During WW2, and after our part of country was liberated the convent was used as a military hospital for the joined forces. An old army trunk was left behind after they left and my father in law stashed it away in the attic.
We found it there and a couple of years ago I gave it a Frenchy makeover. 
This year it got yet another makeover and inspired me to redecorate a corner of our outdoor terrace. 
Loving this bit of our garden now!

Lovely feautures today at the Vintage Inspirations Party!
Come link up your own vintage (inspired) projects for a chance to be featured.
Hello my friends. Today is a beautiful day here in the low lands. I see blue skies and a bit of sun, which means of course that it is actually very cold. Good day to go out for  a walk and than come inside and warm up while snuggling under a blanket and sipping hot chocolate. And while I am doing that I am going to have fun looking at some vintage inspiration. Will you join me? Welcome back to the Vintage Inspiration Party!   Your links will ...

Coastal Cloche
On a rainy morning I ventured across the border to go flea market shopping. I found this glass dome with a ghastly pastoral scene underneath. It looked horrible but I saw the potential. With a little bit of time and creativity that cloche got a new look and now I sporting this coastal cloche and loving it.

Add some organization to your life and create order in those office drawers.
Hop on over to see how good my desk drawers look now.
Use old boxes and containers and do some office drawer organizing. It is easy, free and looks so cute. And you'll never have to search for the stapler again.
