While traveling earlier in the month I was able to take advantage of some after Christmas sales at Tuesday Mornings in Pigeon Forge. I bought 3 Christmas storage type boxes with the intention of re-making them into family photo and memento boxes for our library. The pictures were in ugly cardboard boxes and needed a new home badly.
Here are the pictures and products used for the make over.
|I have removed the big red bow on all the boxed and fixed a few corners that made them even less expensive. :-)|
|First coast was chalk paint and then I added the craft acrylic turquoise paint to it for the second dry brushed layer|
|I used the burnt sienna color to rub around corners and give it a vintage feel and then a little gold rub on never hurts to brighten things up|
|Tim Holtz tissue paper and also made my own tissue paper using Stampin Up roller stamps. I decided on teh smallest box to just use the wheel stamps right onto the box. Each method gave a different look. Loved them all.|
|The third wheel did not have it's paper tag any longer with it's name.|

|All filled and in their new home.|
Thanks for stopping by.
See you next week!
