DIY: upcycle sewing box

I've had this box years, infact my mum has had it for years, then gave it to me, so it's pretty old. The other day I was looking at it and thought "how ugly are you!". It was in definite need of a make over!

the lining was ruined!

What did I do? I simply painted it white, and put in new lining with a glue gun: now it looks like a brand new box - plus I didn't spend a penny as the paint and glue gun was left over from my college things, and the lining was a free fabric sample I got years ago! This is what the box now looks like:


So simple, yet so effective!
