Pretty Wooden Tissue Box

I love to find things to paint at the thrift store,

ideas come to me as I stand there....

so when I found this wooden tissue box with a very ugly
 brass colonial eagle nailed on the top...

I thought it would be really cute if I got rid of 
the eagle and paint up it up in a fun bright color...

I gave the box a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
in Provence
(because my goal is to try every color...)
and because I love this bright, happy color.

See the classroom organizers I painted in this color.

When the paint was dry I used my 
Silhouette to print out
Bless You
and adhered it to the top of the box.

I gave this adorable tissue box a coat of clear wax
and I'm bringing it to school for my Pre K kids!
