Metal Box Makeover

Happy Thursday!  I can't believe it is the middle of May and school is almost always amazes me how time has a way of flying by, and it just seems to go faster and faster the older I get.  We had almost 9 inches of snow on Mother's day and thankfully things are back to "normal" around these parts, nice and springy.

Anyway...I have a fun and super easy project today.  A Metal Box Makeover!
So fun right?  You have to see the before to really appreciate it though...and since this is my contributor post for Oh My! Creative you need to click on over to check it out.

Thanks, and I hope you are enjoying your May!
