Favorite find at County Living Fair -- film box re-purpose

It was love at first sight when I spied these old library film boxes.
This is what they looked like before a few adjustments.

I didn't want to change them too much since they already had great patina and a mixture of materials.

Ideal for displaying art

or favorite photos.

I had to remove the glued on label bits and the back brads (to adjust straps) and add hanging wires.

These vintage boxes have lots of other possibilities.....they'd be cool with quotes or monograms, and would be interesting with added bits of vintage paper or collage materials for embellishment.

 Less is more for my taste, so I'll just leave them plain.
