"Old Wooden Box"
As you can see, the box has seen better days. Bits of it were coming apart and needed repairing with plenty of PVA.
"It has a lid..."
Also, I don't think they could have discovered the right angle in those days lol!
"...and a drawer!"
So I didn't feel too guilty about losing the wooden look :-)
"Finished box - the outside"
Since the box will be living on my desk, and I share an office with my husband, I had to pick some papers we both like. Luckily for me, he loves the Graphic45 Birdsong collection.
My best friend Lee aka craftyloops sent me this fabulous "diamond" knob, so I got Tom to drill a hole in the drawer for it (he's got all those "man" tools for jobs like this lol!). Thanks Lee, it is just perfect :-)
"Front corner showing side"
The "twiddly bits" are all painted with black acrylic paint.
Yes, the inside is decorated too! Well, I had to do something to cover all the cracks :-)
