Box Transformation

If you know me at all, you know some of my favorite things to transform, are boxes.  I even did a couple posts on box transformations a while back.  Well, here's one I just finished.

This is what it looked like before.

It had been painted over, the lock did not work, and, it wasn't, me.

I removed the top, and, used wood filler for the holes.

The handle is a metal piece I've had lying around for some time.  It was originally attached to a broken glass serving dish.  I believe it was in the free box at a garage sale.  I loved the ornate details, and, knew I'd find a use for it eventually.

After attaching the handle, I gave the entire piece a layered, grey, and, white, finish.

I made the metal "Paris" tag for the front.

Much better, don't you think?

    Well done, Rosemary. You sure do know how to transform things into works of art!

  2. I love this beauty! I see you used one of your special tags. I bought some with the thought of using some on one of my shrines but when it comes to actually attaching one it is just too hard to do because I love them so much. I am a Villabarnes tag hoarder, lol!
