Show and Tell

Today I'm showing you a couple wooden boxes that I painted. I had a book of labels that had several old time products as they were packaged several years ago.These were really fun to do. They were base coated with 2 colors before painting the design. They are sanded several times to show the basecoat colors.

I really like the Crayola design.

I don't do much painting anymore and really do miss it at times.

For more Show and Tell posts go over to Kelli's House.

Wow!! Nice job! And a very clever use for those labels. No since hiding them within the pages of a book -- best to bring 'em out and let 'em shine, shine, shine!
