Repurposed Tackle Box

I picked up this tackle box a couple weeks ago at a church rummage sale for $5  It was full of gas powered remote control car parts.  This little case had seen a lot of use.  I spray painted it white, and then painted the drawers with flat black.  Now it is a perfect traveling case for all the art retreats and classes I plan on attending in the future.  It holds all my necessary supplies and is compact and portable.  So remember next time you see something at a yard sale that you might not usually buy (I always pass by the "guy" stuff) think of it from another perspective.  What could I do with that...?  It could be an art kit for your kids holding all their crayons, pencils, stickers and such.  It could be a jewelry making supplies case...  or embellishments for scrapbooking.  The possibilities are endless, if you think outside the box.

I really like what you've done to the old tackle boxes is there any way you would be in the position to letting one go I am a artist in Pennsylvania who started working with wire and miscellaneous recyclable objects and then turn them into works of art
