An "OLD" Box

   Isn't it funny how the simplest finds are the ones that excite you the most? A treasure,a diamond in the rough, well you get it..Well this morning I was frequenting my local Salvation Army again hoping that they would have a change of heart and not charge astronomical prices for used furniture anymore,when out of the corner of my eye I saw this beat up old funky wood box,bowl? It was large and old and I could clearly see it had seen better days so I snatched it up and headed for home! Best part,$1.99 AWESOME!!
So I got it home and cleaned it up some and then put on a coat of dark walnut stain then a coat of white primer followed by a coat of Heirloom white.Then I remembered a trick from my Very cool pal Holly and I scrapped off the paint in places with a razor blade and that's all she wrote!! Now my favorite magazines have a place to rest:)
