This is one of my all time favorite box redesigns. I've been adding horseshoes to boxes for years. With this one, I also added a fragment from a curtain rod for decoration, and vintage book pages to the interior. I also antiqued the entire thing. You can view the original post HERE.
This was the first horseshoe handled box I shared with you. A little self-promotion.
A simple box, stenciled, and given metal ornamentation. Original post HERE.
Sewing boxes are perfect candidates for redesigns.
The applique was already there on this next one. I added the handles, and an old world finish.
Paint, stenciling, and a dimensional design tricked out this one. Original post HERE.
I added the ornate applique to this one, and painted it for unification.
I added faux oxidation, and wine labels to these metal boxes. Check out the before, and my faux oxidation tutorial HERE.
How about an applique and number for a carrier.
Of course you've seen what I've been doing with small drawers lately.
I could go on an on. Seriously, I could. However, I'll save more for another post.
Rosemary, your work is beautiful. I love all your creations.ReplyDelete
Lovely, creative work!ReplyDelete
You have some great ideas on how to transform plain boxes and drawers. I think they would make a pretty planter in the center of a kitchen or dining room table. So many great uses!ReplyDelete
Your boxes are beautiful! So amazingly creative. I'm stopping by today from DIY Showoff.ReplyDelete
