A French Inspired Box

My third post for today!  Gee I'm having a great day!

I got this at a Thrift Store on the weekend:


Again, some leftover paint and an image from The Graphics Fairy and I have  box I love.  I used carbon paper to transfer the image and then I hand painted it.  I haven't used those paint brushes in soooo... long it was fun.  However, did make me realize if I am going to start using them again I need some new ones as the ends are a bit frayed, not good for fine detail work.

I may use this on our sideboard to hold utensils and such or some dried hydranges when mine are ready to harvest or next summer out on our deck to hold fresh herbs.  For now I just want it somewhere that I can look at it ;)
