Altered Ladies Vanity Storage Box

Altered Ladies Vanity
Storage Box
 
Hello everyone! Well, here we are at the end of April already and another month is behind us. I am looking forward to May and seeing all the beautiful springtime colours! I am still in the midst of organizing my craft room, and this piece I want to share with you today is for storing my metal embellishments in. I used a box from Dollarama I got on my last trip there, I love the wood boxes from there, they are such a great price and good quality.
 
I decided to create a ladies vanity look to this piece, I wanted it to seem like the Lady had just been there and run out for a fun night on the town and left her dressing table in slight disarray as she was in such a hurry lol.
 
Here you can see the top of the box, I used a wood piece to create a picture frame, I cut out the image of the Vintage lady and used glossy accents over it to give it a glassy look. the metal corners and filigree pieces are from ButterBeeScraps.
 
 



Here is a side view of the whole box, you can see I used the Prima Lyric paper, and the "art is.." mask for the script on the sides and top.
 
I used a Tim Holtz piece on the front and the word "love" is also from the Lyric paper. the chain is from my stash, and the flower is from Recollections. Other flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

 
Here is another close up of the top, the Resin pieces are from DiscountPaperCrafts on Etsy.


 
 
Here is a few more pictures for you to see :)
