Crazy Little Box

I think I took a trip to crazy town for this little treasure box. It was a fun little trip! LOL- Really, I wasn't so sure what I was going to do with this box.  So, I decided to stain the wood.  Once the stain dried it seemed to be just about the same color as the original wood.  That's when I decided to slap some yellow acrylic paint on my finger and experiment.  I was in a playful mood and the ink was right there, beside a squiggly little stamp. Before I knew it, the box was covered in little beige squiggles. Is that a word? 

Honestly, I think I'm going to revisit this project later and Mod Podge over it or something! I'll be sure to share my adventures with you if I decide to revisit this crazy little box!


  1. Your kids have great bright colors in their rooms. You should let them keep special items in these boxes.

  2. I get so irritated when I want to stain something and it ends up looking exactly the same!! I assumed the natural finish stain would still add some character.

  3. I like it. Leave it like it is. You'll find a use for it.

  4. You can count squiggles as a word in the craft world....aka swirls. We follow our own dictionary.


Hearing from you makes us so happy! Please leave us a kind word.
