from splinter to… Splendid

Wooden Box

Remember this hideous wooden box I found last week in the group of things I got for $10?


Well, look at it now!


So easy to do. I cleaned the box with Lysol wipes and painted 2 coats of Serene Blue Chalky Paint by Americana Decor (not my favorite chalky paint but it works good on small projects). I then drilled a hole in the top for the glass knob (I think it was $3 at Home Depot), sanded/antiqued and added Annie Sloan Wax. I cut the design out of vinyl on my Silhouette machine. I love how the detail of the dovetail (joints on corners) and top came out after I antiqued it.

Stay tuned to see the other makeovers from the $10 group!
