Plain Old Boxes

Take grimy old wooden boxes, a handful of shutter slats, sandpaper, paint and vintage hardware ... place all in a bag with creativity ... shake vigorously  ... and BANG! 
-------two sweet holders.

"Holders" of :
- hand towels 
-mason jars of silverware
-old soda bottles of flowers
-magazines and mail
-CDs and DVDs
... just to list a few ideas. 

These zesty handles were easily bent inside out.  Attaching was the tricky part.  I spent a little time in the fasteners aisle at a hardware store and discovered different lengths of what I call "eyebrads" --- similar to heavy-duty  bobbypins.
