I am finally getting around to paring down my paper mache box ‘stash’ and getting some of them painted and ready to sell.
I used to paint tons of them primitive style. Then when I switched to more cottage style I wasn’t sure what direction to go with the boxes. I fianlly just decided to paint a few of them in the cottage colors even though I wasn’t sure how to ‘finish’ them. Figured it would ‘come to me’ eventually . . . .
So they sat like this for a while. Then I took them to the store where I have all my foam stamps and other fun stuff to play with.
And here is what I ended up with. I added painted wood spool ‘feet’ and a painted wood knob on the top box and a different stamped design on each box.
Then lightly sanded the edges and surface to make them look a little ‘worn and loved’.
