Rustic Trinket Box

I was up really early this morning.  Obviously the thought of cleaning more windows was just too exciting! lol!  I had a great time catching up with a few of my blogging friends and finished off a little box that has been knocking about in my craft room for a while.

Originally I was making this to put a bracelet in as a Christmas gift.   As is the  norm I over did the distressing but I quite like it so I am going to keep it to put on my bedside cupboard.

Have a lovely day what ever you are doing.

    Wow – this is brilliant. I love all those textural paint effects and colours on your box which give it a worn, vintage appeal. Gorgeous. And thank you for taking the time to leave a sweet comment on my blog too. Px
