Another round of gathering treasure from the barn. Yay, me!
I’m not sure how long these boxes had been in the barn, but they looked like brand-new, unfinished wood boxes from Hobby Lobby or Micheal’s. They were just too cute to leave hidden in the barn.
I also found these two boxes. They were definitely on the other end of the workmanship scale. They were handmade by somebody. Probably as basic organization for a garage or workshop. Although they were basically rough in appearance, the construction wasn’t bad.
I had a bag of brass doohickey embellishments in my craft stash. I figured they would be perfect for adding a little dimension to these plain boxes.
I thought the “frilly” doohickeys were a bit much for these homemade boxes, so I chose basic keyhole plates.
Everything got a couple coats of the butter yellow paint that I’ve had showing up in a lot of my projects lately. Can’t help it. I just love the soft look of it.
A little sanding…then a wash of watered down gesso.
Sometimes simple is best.
Yay, Me! I was featured!
