I decoupaged this box with a tissue copy of script, and a section of a vintage French postcard. You can read how I copy onto tissue HERE. The interior was white washed, and scripted as well.
For all you bird lovers.
glued it to the top of the box, and gave it several coats of paint. The interior I decorated with vintage wallpaper.
I love redesigning silverware boxes. I find them at thrift stores, garage sales, etc., and they're usually in sad condition. I just gut the interior, and have at it.
This is another silverware box I redesigned. The interior is decoupaged with vintage wrapping paper.
For the top, I used a rose applique. It was painted white as well, followed by dark wax for the antique finish.
A couple posts back, I showed you my simple angel silverware box.
Well, I did the same with my French graphic.
I also added a screw-in knob.
I added script to the interior.
This box was just white washed, and scripted.
This box received an applique, book pages, and an antique finish.
Here are a few more ideas for lidded boxes. How about adding a little metal decoration to the lid.
This music box was white washed, which softened the original color. I used a metal fragment, and numbered tack as embellishment. You can review that post HERE.
Here's another one. Same idea, with script.
This next box was part of one of my giveaways.
I used a dimensional design, and an applique on the exterior, and, sheet music for the interior.
If you have a large lidded box, why not add legs?
I turned this box into a footstool. You can review how HERE.
Even cardboard can be jazzed up with a dimensional design, and a little imagination. Check out the before HERE. You can check out how to add dimension HERE, or check out my sidebar.
Here's another cardboard box idea. I glued lace to the top, and gave the entire thing multiple coats of white paint.
The interior has a French book page.
So, did I give you any ideas?
I'll be sharing a bunch of open box ideas next. I'll be honest. Corral transformations are probably my favorites.
