Garage sale find

I was just about to drag my feet home after a non-eventful garage sale fosick when I spotted two boxes. Calling my friend over, we turned the boxes over in our hands trying to determine what they were. A few things gave it away:


1. They were from Ikea (still in their shiny wrapping)

2. They had a sliding glass front

3. They had picture hooks on the back

With our clever detective work we determined that these swedish boxes were 3 dimensional photo frames. Ooh la la.....now what do I do with them?


So I got painting.



And filled them with stuff.


Then hung them on my wall.
