Soap Box..

As the winter days creep along, I find myself wanting to be productive indoors. I've been trying to keep my hands busy and thanks to my sister in law, I happened upon another little project to complete.

Alison had read in a Martha Stewart magazine that in order to keep your kitchen counters clutter free, a small organized container for your soaps and lotions, would be helpful. So, we gave the 'soap box' plans to the hubs, and within 2 days he produced a lovely wooden holder for our kitchen items.

I decided to paint it with my cupboard door paint colour, and crackled it to add a shabby chic/distressed look. I added a gold star, and painted a design ... and wa-laa! You have my 'Soap box'.
