repurposed shoe boxes {project organization}


Happy Tuesday y'all! Did everyone have a good weekend? We caught up on a lot of stuff around the house and had some fun too. Friday night we went to a favorite local restaurant and had friends over Saturday.

Mid-way into my productive morning on Saturday, my foot pedal on my sewing machine broke. Boo! Second time on my little Singer machine. It was time to upgrade anyway so I ordered the Brother PC-420. So excited to get it! Is should be here tomorrow:)

After the sewing machine blow-out, I had to turn my attention to non-sewing crafts. I made a few gifts (tomorrow on the blog) and started an organization overall. For years and years I have been saving my shoe boxes. Needless to say I have A LOT of shoe boxes. I think I initially saved them because I was moving often in college and early 20s, but that part is over - no more moving (at least for a long time). But I couldn't just throw those boxes away!

I had some left over chalkboard paint from a previous project (or two), so I gave the boxes a coat of paint, a label, and organized a shelf in my pantry.

I am loving the cleanliness factor so far! My pantry is HUGE, so its going to take some time to finish this project, but I hope to have it done this weekend:)

Do you use old shoe boxes for anything?!?!?
