Antique Boxes?

These are a couple wooden boxes I had made so I could paint them to look like vintage boxes. They were fun to do. There are base colors, painted under the final color, that show through when sanded. I got the pattern and instructions in an Old Fashion Label book by Connie Williams printed in the early nineties. The recipe box shelf used to be stained wood too but I like it better painted and aged. I don't get to paint much anymore with 2 jobs. I used to teach classes in my basement and get together with some friends once a week to paint. I really do miss it, especially in the winter when there is no outdoor work (except shovelling snow, of course)
