Recipe Box Redo

Today I went to Goodwill and found this little box on the back corner of a shelf.

I immediately snatched it up because I'd never seen anything like it.  After studying it for a couple of minutes, I decided it definitely had some potential, so I purchased it for $2.99. 

After sanding, priming, painting, and distressing it, I'm in love with the final result...

Isn't it great?

I lightly sanded the finish with a block sander to "rough it up" and used Krylon primer and black satin spray paint.

My husband distressed the corners by lightly sanding them when the paint was completely dry.

Plenty of room in there for yummy recipes :)  One last before and after shot.....
