Keepsake Worthy Box

Updated: Apr 19

I have a small box that I use to keep ticket stubs and other small memorabilia from events I have attended or from my travels. It is fun to go back through them and remember the event or tour and with who you attended the event.


Small wooden boxes can easily be found at thrift stores and garage sales. I picked up this one at a garage sale for less than a dollar.

The outside of the box had seen better days.

The lining of the box was falling apart and was very dirty. I pulled all of out out.



To freshen it up, I painted the box with Waverly chalk paint in the Cashew color and distressed the paint and used Varathane Crystal Clear Satin polyurethane over the entire piece.

I decoupaged the inside with some old maps.



Now it is ready to start holding someone's special keepsakes.

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it. So come along the backroads of Indiana with Junk is My Life (me), let's find something vintage and do something cool with it! Formerly Junk Journal.
