Jewelry box and Ravelry RAK

My first shabby chic!!!!


I used a tin box from an old perfume box. I have always used this box as a jewelry box and never liked how it looked. At first, I was thinking of painting it white and just apply the napkin on the top. I didn't want the "shabby look". But after I applied the white paint in several coats with a brush I realized that I can never make it good enough to keep it like that. The white was never perfect and smooth enough. Then I scratched the surface and turned it in to a "shabby box".




Also I have been lucky enough to receive "RAK in Europe" gifts from Ravelry members. As you can see I got a lot of napkins, post stamps, handmade cards,decoupage materials, Tea and 100% Linen. Special thanks to Akina78 (pic No1), TessVintageKnits (pic No.2), Breiboek (pic No.3) and Knittermarie (pic No.4),
