Refinishing Wood Boxes

I found these wood boxes at an antique mall.  I liked them.

They were super affordable, and the price included dirt, spiders & cobwebs.

First, I de-cobwebbed them.

Then, I went over them with a sanding block.

I painted them with a coat of poly.  The boxes were a nice color.  Well, actually they were 2 colors.  Some of them were very natural.  The others were a bit darker, but nice.  I put clear satin on them all.

I let them dry for a couple days.  They quickly found homes.

When you offer a stack of cute wood boxes to people, everyone wants 5.   They are now everywhere.

Some of them are being used to keep my son’s desk organized.
