Found, free storage!

I really need to go poking around in my basement more often...maybe this winter when it is freezing down there so there aren't any spiders scurrying around *shudder*. Why do I need to do this? Well I went down to check out the new (free! We received some items for free after Military Man's great grandfather died- we are so lucky!!) chest freezer and because Military Man had to clear a space for it things were all moved around.

I saw this sitting on top of some boxes:

A small black plastic basket. We have an entire basement 75% full of the previous owners stuff (Military Man bought the house from friends and they just left some stuff). A lot of it is broken or old electronics but there are some things that I could reuse or makeover.

So back to the basket- perfectly functional as it was but I was itching to break out this new spray paint I bought months ago. American Accents Satin finish in Aqua!

So I did.

Then I made a cute tag with my Silhouette machine (did you know it's Mac compatible now?!). Little Man isn't reading yet so I thought a picture would be useful for him to know what was supposed to go in there.

I just cut it out with the Silhouette then colored the back of the tag with an orange marker, glued them together and laminated them using my Xyron 9-Inch Creative Station. Then I just tied a ribbon through the holes in both the tag & basket!

So what do you think?

The images I used from the Silhouette store are the following:
toy car: (toy_car_C00344_23067)
tag: (tag_1047) (I couldn't find this in the store so I think it was one that came pre-loaded with the machine?)

Have you found anything fun tucked away in your house lately?

Hope you have a Happy Day,
