And thanks to Wendy, it's Handmade Monday again. Check out what people have been up to by clinking the link and start blog hopping: 1st Unique Gifts
So in the hectic race that was last week I managed to make head way with one of those boxes at the very least. Some touch up work needed on the inside, and a layer of varnish. Over all I am reasonably happy with the effect, and I think it will look just fine on the book shelf, home to all my needles and loose threads. The box was given to me when someone couldn't do much with it. It had been painted heavily in emulsion and needed stripping down and the hinges needed to be replaced. All that considered I am surprised it turned out the way it did.
I guess when I get a minute or two I should look at finishing the other, though I am not holding my breath for a spare minute just yet ;)
Okay, now to tackle the list of gifts sitting on my coffee table *sigh*. I hate Valentines :) Wouldn't mind so much if they were all for me, hehehe.
