You think I would be used to this by now, but it always amazes me what a little bit of paint can do to transform an item. In this case it was a set of three decorative wood boxes with handles. I really liked the shape of the boxes, but the brown and orange color scheme with vegetables wasn't working for me. I repainted the boxes with Paris Grey and Old White and added some distressing and subtle amounts of dark wax to give them so additional character.
Since I had the paint out I also decided to re-do this small wood and bamboo jewelry box. I gave it a coat of Paris Grey and then added pink to the bamboo areas. I heavily distressed the entire box and now it reminds me of a tiny treasure box.
