I got this sewing box for free at the Market. I painted it blue and then attached some pretty papers to it. I found a vintage gold frame and printed out a picture of an old pattern to put in it. I attached it to the box with some nails.

I started out with just a plain old black night stand.I
I found these designs on The Graphics Fairy and traced them onto the top. I hand painted them in about twenty minutes, it really doesn't take long to do at all.
This is just a little hand made box I had and painted.
I quite often have the opportunity to pick up primitives very cheap at the market where I have my booth. They have auctions every Friday night and I go Saturday morning and have the exclusive privilege of buying the left-overs. I found this old barn box out in their yard one bright Saturday morning and knew that it needed a lot of work but I just couldn't resist it. I paid my 5.00 and loaded in the car. (Only after I swept the chicken nest out of the bottom).
I painted the sides, front, and back in this design. I don't know what the new owner is going to do with this old box but I hope they give it as much love as I have!
It started out as any day I have ever lived. I get the husband and the son off to work and then down to the workshop to paint something. Today I decided to get the Modge Podge out and work on this wooden mirror I found at a sale.
and then painted it a delicate pink. I went over that with a dark brown glaze and then top coated it.
This is just a remake of a table I had. A coat of paint and an owl design not much fuss!
I found this metal owl trio at the thrift shop last year and finally decided what to do with it. I spray painted it black, they were a cooper color to start with. The base is something I had in my spare parts box. I painted it blue and stenciled the white design and word peace onto it. I love the little hooters they are so cute!
