My husband loves Cuban cigars. In fact he is passionate about them. Several years ago he quit smoking, but once a while he used to smoke a cigar. His craving for cigars grew bigger over the years and, along with the craving, the empty wooden cigar boxes started to pile up.
I liked these boxes and was kind of reluctant to throw them away. I was sure that there must be a way to repurpose them somehow, but no idea clicked my mind on how to make them usable. Well, yesterday I got stricken by an idea on how to beautify these boxes. I was reorganizing my storage and came across to a can of “wood black glazing paint for untreated wood”; so, I thought I should try to paint the empty cigar box so we could use it to drop the keys, wallet, change etc.
This vintage valet inside the box is over 150 years old and used to belong to my husband’s predecessors. Throughout a century and a half this wallet went through some interesting experiences, and even survived three wars. Now the valet has found a cozy and glamorous spot, and it appears to feel relaxed there
Thank you for reading. Hope you will visit again for more fun ideas which will be coming soon.
