Just One Tip: Repurposing A Vintage Tackle Box

Hi friends! It’s Noelle stopping in today with a fun tip. You may already know from seeing my studio that I am kind of a sucker for antiques and anything vintage. I tend to embrace a “modern with a vintage twist” style in my own home, and I particularly enjoy reusing vintage items in my studio. So, last week my friend Wendy and I were out antiquing, and I found this awesome vintage metal tackle box for 12$. I saw several in the antiques mall we were in, and this was my fave by far, and also the most inexpensive-yea!

I used it to put many of my small embellishments in, mostly eyelets and brads. There’s a cool big compartment in the top of the box where I am storing my Crop-A-Dile, there never was a good place to stash it before! 🙂

While perusing Pinterest, I found several other ideas for reusing an old fishing tackle boxes (or, if you are old enough to remember the 80s like yours truly, you could even repurpose an old Caboodles cosmetic box for a kitschy, fun look).

 

Love this use for storing tags.

Finally, a tackle box used in a guest room to store items a guest might need-love this one! 🙂
