  5. To give my box a shabby chic look, it was lightly brushed with white craft paint, it doesn't have to be perfect, that makes it more shabby. To give it an older look you can dry brush with tan craft paint.

I love it! I found 2 Whitman's Sampler holiday tins for my thread storage. No more having to dust off my spools before sewing.
Good job!

I love your shabby chic box. I just found an antique box at a yard sale for a quarter. "Love those yard sales." :) I can't decide yet what to do to it.
