Beauty Case to First Aid Kit

Remember when I found that vintage beauty case and the little ones took a hold of it? Well I finally got it back and gave it a make over.

As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted it to be, a first aid kit, which odly enogh the little two, who have recently been loving the nursery rhyme, Miss Polly had a dolly had the same idea. They called it their doctor bag and played with it for a few weeks.



As soon as they got bored with it, I grabbed it and painted it up.


I have to say I just love this, I really wanted to keep the buttons and latch in the condition they were in some I taped them up and painted around it. 


DIY Delight or Disaster? DELIGHT!! I just love they white paint against the old latch. it's roomy enough to hold everything in and portable so we can take it with us when we go away. Sorry kids, Mummy is not giving it back!


Thanks for reading,

  4. That's really cute. I like that you left the latch. It looks sort of vintage and really hip at the same time. I didn't know a first aid kit could be so stylish!!

  8. Well my first aid kit is an old zippered pouch that used to hold make-up. Guess I could take it up a notch or two! Nice one Mel!
