While we’re on the subject

I have been meaning to blog this since before Christmas. Remember this box I got at a garage sale? I was going to do it up for my brother’s 21st birthday…

Here it is all done up to the nines’. 


I painted it a slate grey and attached new handles.


The outlines of the letters were lightly printed on to old pages of Shakespeare plays, then I cut them out and modge-podged them on to the box. I did several layers over top of the letters to make sure they wont come off.


I managed to get it to him only 6 months late… a record for me!

Who knows what he will put in it, boy stuff no doubt.

Totally love it. Aren't those little sanders a great help. Like the 'established' date too! Cherrie
