Tool Box makeover

I finally found a tool box shaped box to makeover.

I was texting my daughter pictures and

I told her that I thought it needed a number.

She picked 16 :)

Inside solid.

I used a stencil and craft paint, then I roughed it up with sandpaper.

I also added the standbys,

burlap and hydrangeas :)

  9. This is beautiful, Debbie! Love your color choices; especially the hydrangeas (my favorite flower!). The burlap is a lovely touch, too. (How did you get the great stripe effect? It looks as though you added it after the numbers.)
