I ran across some old silverware boxes
at my favorite consignment shop.
I thought they would make great storage
as decorative boxes.
Here's the before look before I painted them.
Here's one I painted black and used bird accents.
The lining was still in good shape
so I kept it.
I just added a little bird stencil to tie in with the top.
This one I painted one of my favorite colors.
You guess it. Turquoise.
I dry brushed it with black and added
another bird stencil.
On the inside I didn't keep the lining
so I painted it gloss black.
This box wasn't really a silverware box.
It was a small cedar box.
I painted this one red and dry brushed it with black.
I added a black knob and kept the inside cedar.
I call this the dog box.
It's a denim color blue.
I painted the bone on the top
so you could add your pets name on it.
Then added some paw prints and an adorable dog head knob.
I kept the lining on this one also.
It's a prettier brown then it looks in the picture.
I added a big paw print inside and also added some little feet on the bottom.
Here's the first one I ever did.
It's for my little dog Tilly, that past away last July.
I left it stained and painted some pink accents on it.
I lined this one in pink and added some ribbon.
It holds a picture of her.
Isn't she beautiful. I really miss her.
I also put all her old collars, bows, and some of her first stuffed animals in there.
I also put the sympathy cards that were sent after she died.
It's a treasured box. You can read more about Tilly here.
And lastly, this one I painted a bright blue
and added a tree and some birdies.
I also put on a wooded knob that I stenciled with a bird.
I added some little feet to this one also.
Well that's it. Hope you like them.
I'd love to read your comments.
