An Old Box

24 years ago this box was a gift from the Grand children to a Grandmother, the occasion was a Christmas Day, the Year was 1985. I found this box in an Antique store, it had an inscription inside the cover, I sanded all except the year, all was with permanent marker. The box is 13 1/2" x 11 1/4" W and 16 3/4" H. The next step was deciding what to do, the blue bird is painted and it came with the box. I had saved some old images from calendars and finally selected a nice one to use inside the cover and see it when open the box. The idea was to do decoupage and sealed but keep the antique look of the box. . At the end I put a plant but the box can be use in other ways. It is a real treasure.
