Ooops, I guess I deleted the before shot, but it looked like this but gray-ish and chipped:
After painting the box an heirloom white, I started with the inside.
I got a book from the recycle depot and started tearing out the pages (yikes... don't hate me. I am recycling it!!)
Then I used mod podge to glue the torn pages into the inside of the box.
Looks good so far! Then I picked up this little bird from the dollar store.
I was wanting him for myself (because he is so cute), but I placed him on the box, and he just had to stay. I painted him blue. Who doesn't think a little blue bird is cute!
I painted the top of the box blue, and added scrapbook paper into the glass frames, along withsome personal touches - my nephew's name is Beau. So cute! And here is the end result:
I love how it turned out! Now I just have to find my nephew a cute little outfit to go inside. I hope you enjoyed!!
