Numbered Hat Boxes & A Giveaway

Hi everyone. I hope everyone had a good weekend. It is Make it for Monday again hosted by Cindy at Cottage Instincts. Well my project is a series of white numbered hatboxes. I was inspired to do this thanks to A Beach Cottage, Sarah had a great post on a painted and numbered toolbox. I didn't have a toolbox, but I did have some hatboxes from a Christmas display. So I said to myself why not.
Here are the hatboxes before, rather plain. I think I bought them at Jo Ann's. So I picked a number font and sized them for each box.
Here goes the paint. I used some eggshell paint I had in my garage. I just made sure it was kind of matte.
Next I printed numbers on full sheet clear labels and cut them out carefully. I did this because my is not study enough to paint numbers. Anyway no one will ever know.
There you have it numbered hatboxes, great for storage and they look pretty too.
