Numbered Cubbies / Numbered Shelves

While cleaning out a wayward closet a few weeks ago I found this little dark wood/stained “cubbie box”. It was very forlorn-looking.

I’ve always loved numbered cubbies and numbered shelves….we are actually working on doing a wall of large numbered cubbies in our dining room. I thought this little piece would be fun as a miniature one to host a rotating collection of whatever finds its way to it.

I painted it white with chalk paint. Distressed it a bit with dark wax…and used a sharpie to number it. We’ve had fun rotating what’s inside.

It reminds me of a miniature version of vintage hotel mail slots.

A fun little project that cost $0….can’t beat that!

What have you been up to lately? Any fun projects going on?

  1. Dauny,
    Love those boxes – they each look like separate pictures or shadow boxes. You could change them around or go with a color theme or just a theme….they are cool! Or as my kids would say, that is “fresh”!!!

    I am working on rearranging my office and getting my business up and running. So MANY things to take care of – so afraid to make a mistake.

    Blessing right back at you!!

      Thanks! We have fun changing them around…..Oh, how nice it will be to have a ‘fresh’ office! 🙂 It will be a great way to get your business going…organized and ready to go. I totally understand worrying about making mistakes. When you start a business there are so many bases to cover. I know you will do great! 🙂

Love to hear from you guys.......
