70s Vintage Sewing Box

My new sewing box I picked up today at an estate sale in Elmwood Park. I picked it up for $6 bucks and it was filled with thread, some patterns from the 80s (can probably use on the of them) three pairs of electric scissors, oh my. A ton of needles, ribbon in assorted colors and an instructional booklet for a Kenmore Model 50 sewing machine.

Below is a shot of the front of the sewing box, cannot wait to get rid of the contact paper. I'm going  thru all of my fabric now and wall paper to see what might work.

Below is the top of the sewing box which had a really nasty fabric  over the original contact paper. I have quickly removed it, don 't worry.

The first thing I'm going to do is spray paint the legs and brown plastic detail around the box high gloss white. Next I'm thinking about covering the sides of the box with this wallpaper that I picked up in NOLA ages ago. See photo below.

Now off to the garage to spray paint the legs and detail work.
