It’s your Thrifty Girl here again to share with you a freebie re-purpose….Remember my visit to Costco a couple weeks ago.. You know the big boxes they provide to pack your items in.. well I’ve been saving the two I brought home… (can you say “hoarder”- because that’s what my son said when I told him to keep them) chuckles…
I had a re-purpose in mind… Little Ms. KoKo needs a bed.. She’s been sleeping on a pillow on the floor (with covers of course) but I figure I’d give her her very own bed….
Here’s the box before…(excuse the paint swatch.. just testing to see if paint would adhere to the box)
I chose a color that would match the family room sofa (since it’s going to be in that room).. It’s a bronze hammered spray paint. So..let the spraying begin! Then I added a few little crystals (given to me from my neighbor/friend Cassie) for a touch of bling. Afterwards, I covered her pillow in a hot pink fleece fabric (scraps given to me from my one of my besties – Sylvia – our local seamstress). Here is my finished product of KoKo’s bed.
Pretty Cool – huh?
The paint on the box almost has a suede effect
Here comes Ms. Koko to check out her new crib..
By George – I think she likes it!!!
Her box looks pretty cool here in the family room..
A freebie upscale to satisfy the little lady
Freebies are so much better…. now I’ve got to get busy with the other box… which is going in my bedroom.. So – in my Terminator voice – “I’ll be back ” 🙂
