SOLD !!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

HI all, hope everyone is well. THe weather is icky and rainy outside, although we do need the rain badly. I decided to paint a couple of things today, one is a vintage lunch box. It has been a while since i came across one of these and i love how they come out. Isnt it just amazing what you can do with old stuff that people have tossed aside. I have a friend that does alot of dumpster diving and you wouldnt believe the stuff he finds. I personally have never been in a dumpster befor but i guess if i spied something exciting i might. I be sayin, HONEY BOOST ME UP IM GOIN IN!!!

Any way, the other thing i have worked on today is my favorite, it is an old wood telephone box that i found at the 127 sale. I just cannot resist anything that has that old chippy look to it. I dont know what it is about it but i love it. THe Top and the bottom of the box are painted but i left the rest of the old box in its natural state . THE chippy part just seemed to add just the right touch for me. The box would be great for storage of all kinds of things like keepsakes, as a candle box, or whatever a persons needs are. I have both pieces listed on ebay.Hope you enjoy the pictures!!!
