A friend of mine gave me this rustic box. She said she was done with it. Don't you just love it when that happens?
Of course I am going to paint it. Sorry, it is the vision that came to me while contemplating what to do with it.
The inside is plain...for now.
The first thing I did was add some of these for feet. Using wood glue and a screw on each makes them secure.
I found some embellishments in my stash of things...you gotta have a stash! Some metal, some wood.
I painted it with Navajo white from APC.
The box had holes in the sides for handles, but didn't come with handles. They were very large holes so I decided to use ribbon.
I painted the inside and lined the bottom with vintage wallpaper.
With the paint, embellishments, and distressing, this box has a whole new look. From rustic to shabby for sure!
