Cigar Box Storage

I loves cigar boxes!  
I picked up 16 cigar boxes at a garage sale that interestingly were all the same brand.  
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them at the time.
But, I love cigar boxes.

On the workbench.   
A crate from another garage sale and boards scavenged from my mom and dad's basement.


Today, was Junk Bonanza in Shakopee, MN.  
It's a junkers paradise. Hundreds of booths of junk.  
Some just waiting to be repurposed and some already altered.  
There was a lot of "fixin's" as one vendor called their knobs, brass numbers, game pieces, stamps, etc.
 I have had it on my calendar for months to take the day off from work so I could go this year. 
I scored 8 porcelain knobs that were just perfect.


  1. You could build a masterpiece out of dryer lint and crushed dung beetles. Cool. Proud to be your sister-in-law.

  2. I love cigar boxes too. This project is totally awesome! You did a spectacular job on it.
