An anniversary / birthday and another birthday, lots of celebrating and a homemade gift!
I sanded down the cherry wood box until I reached a semi roughness. It took two coats of a vintage melon color paint. Once the paint was dry I personalized it with the names and date . I Also applied some brown wax around the edges and hinges to obtain that vintage look. A good spray of a water based poly spray was applied then a little burlap and some cute daisies I purchased from the craft section at Tuesday Mornings. Ever been there ? It's a terrific place to get quality items very low at price, including Garden, clothing, housewares which I love they have some very unique things . I was happy that they really liked the memory box, I also included some old photos of them which they thought were funny. It was a great party with some wonderful people!
