My new bead box :)
« on: June 30, 2013, 09:00:49 PM »
I now have a few handmade beads which haven't yet been made into anything and instead of just hanging around I decided they needed their own box.  Had a look on Etsy this morning for a nice box but then figured I'd just paint my own :D

Went to my nearest 'everything' shop and bought a plain wooden jewellery box for ?1.29 and spent the rest of today outside painting it. I've had such a lovely day just sitting in the garden, designing and painting my box and watching a bit of tv on my laptop at the same time :)

I love it!!! It's not quite finished - I need to do something else to the tree, I think it needs leaves or blossom or something, plus the inside needs painting even if it is just one colour, then the whole thing needs varnishing. I am so happy with it and it is perfect for my growing handmade bead stash ;D

It is indeed a Cedric box :D And as it is a jewellery box it has two layers inside which obviously means more room for goodies ;D

I love it, such a cute box and gorgeous summery colours.

It is better to be thought of as a fool in silence, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
