Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. The flowers are a bloomin, the birds are chirping and the stores are all full of lots of fun items that we can craft with. I spotted these cute wooden gift bags at Michael's the other day and was immediately smitten!
Spring is also the time for gift giving to friends.
And while we are on the subject of gifts, Mother's Day is almost here.
Today I'm sharing my idea for gift giving with pretty wooden gift bags.

The other day I was shopping at Michael's (which happens to be my all time favorite store) and I spotted these crates. They were wood and only $10, and if you have a coupon you pay even less.
This got me to thinking if I could use one, and if so, where. I came up with the idea of placing it on top of the cubby unit I just made over, and I'd use it for newspaper storage. The only problem was the unfinished wood. Today I'm going to share how I transformed that crate and got a stunning finish with stain.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
