This kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime.

As promised, here's the scoop on my awesome CD boxes. I ran out of room years ago but had yet to find something I liked to replace them. (I actually liked the holders I was using, but they were discontinued years ago.) So, I went on the hunt and eventually found myself at the Container Store. Initially, I bought these, but they didn't fit the look I was going for. I also wanted something made from natural materials, and it wasn't until after I got home I realized they were plastic. So, it was back to the drawing board. Eventually, I bought white-washed wooden boxes, but they looked a little bland. I haven't used stencils since I was a little girl, and for some reason I thought it would be fun to decorate the boxes in a vintage European theme. I found some awesome stencils on Etsy and let the boxes come together naturally. I worked on them one at a time and after a couple of weeks put together what you see below! (in an effort to be even more resourceful, I used the paint from the numerous samples I've purchased over the weeks!)
