Hard to believe, but I had never altered a wood box before, at least not using paper, lace and paint! I had, a long time ago, added wood elements and a monogram to a box and varnished it as a special present for hubby's grandfather. But nothing like this!
I had a specific look in mind for the cover of the box and I spent days searching the internet. I finally found the image I wanted on Etsy from a buyer called Graphic Market Place. You really should check them out!
My video of the project contains more details about the lovely vintage lace I used and more!
