finished!

At last after a stressful week I can add something new to my shop, this little box will be listed later on. I think this is one of my favourite colours! And do you remember my wonderful butterfly stickers from Paper Menagerie ? Well my grandads box is now finished and I am very pleased with the results. In the end I just cleaned up the box and positioned the stickers to enhance the different stains and knocks the box has had over its life, I don't think it needed much and I wanted to keep its character. I love it! Now, what to keep in it... : ) See you tomorrow for my giveaway information!

Those little boxes are perfect for thread. And the more colorful the better.

The box looks wonderful. I love the old and new effect.

that looks so lovely. I got one very similar that my grandad made for my nan's sewing stuff!

Wow! The box looks lovely, I'm quite the fan of sprusing(?!) up old things. What are you going to keep in it???!

The box is great! I have these square bookshelves in the playroom with soft box bins to store the kids toys. I am now imagining if I replaced the plain solid color green boxes with your box designs how gorgeous that would look.

But my baby and toddler are just too young to keep things nice!

Both are perfect! Yes, I think thread is a nice idea, or bunches of ribbon if you have it.
