I bought this box at Hobby Lobby for $1.97 on clearance.
I altered the box to hold a Father's Day present for my Dad.
I painted the box with a taupe color and then used a crackle medium and finished it with dark chocolate brown paint. I love the way it turned out. It looks like a vintage suitcase. My Dad loves boxes and anything vintage, so this should be a hit! I decoupaged some paper and embellishments from the BoBunny Timepiece collection on the top. The scrabble tiles I got off of Etsy and stained them up with my TH Walnut Stain. The skeleton leaves are from I Am Roses and the bling is by Recollections. The black beading around the inlay area is from Hobby Lobby. I got a 25 yard roll yesterday for $1.50. They aren't flat-back pearls, but do the same job and are a lot cheaper too. My brother is going to mail me all kinds of goodies from Korea and we are going to fill it with Father's Day gifts. I left the sides alone, because I really wanted the crackle to show. I just love how cute it is. And I managed to create another masculine project, these are so hard for me!! :)
