Embellishing Grandma's old sewing box

 
 
My friend Lynne gives me the funnest projects to paint.  I painted and embellished this sewing box for her daughter for a birthday gift.
 

 
 
 It looked like this when I got it....didn't every Grandmother have one of these sewing boxes??
 

 
 
 
We spray painted it blue and I added a flower and ribbon.....
 
 
 
 
And zebra tissue to the inside...
 
 


And an initial to personalize it for her daughter...



What a fun, out of the box project for me!!!   Now I'm on the hunt for a bunch of these sewing boxes.  Keep your eyes out for me, will you?

That is so darn cute. I am crazy about the zebra tissue on the inside. Great job, no wonder, you are the professional.

Every Grandmother...but mine!
She had a whole room dedicated to sewing!!! and it was a HOT MESS!!!
I must be a throwback to my Granny...cause I don't have a sewing box either. Unless, you consider the front bedroom a 'box'. ;0
