I've had the box I used for this project for several years. It was a simple but very sturdy box. Green on the outside and black on the inside.
I spray-painted it (as well as the rooster and the wooden applique) with Krylon's Hammered Copper Paint last spring.
Then it sat around all summer.
Last weekend, I finally glued it all together and embellished it a bit. The thing on the front of the box is the finial for a wall lamp. The lamp hangs above the stairs to the basement and there wasn't room for the finial so I have hung onto it for several years.
This is intended for my MIL but I am not sure how well it will ship. It isn't my style at all. Anybody live in the Twin Cities area and love roosters? You can have it. :)
I will be sharing this at:
