Altered Box - Rhedds Creative Spirit

For this months challenge I altered an old wooden box for a colleague.  She wanted it to have a vintagy feel to it and is giving it to a friend as a wedding present - memory box

I painted it in several layers of paint and in between sanding it all back for the really distressed look.  I used napkins for the top and loads of modpodge and sanding it in between layers until completely smooth.  I deliberately sanded some of the napkin pics away to make it look aged






Thats it for now but why not head on over to Rhedds Creative Spirit and join in with this months challenge.  Go on you know you want to LOL
