Create and Old World Finish on a Simple Box

I couldn't be more pleased with the way my little box project turned out. Next time you are thrifting, keep an eye out for little treasures like this. So long it has good bones, just as my box did, you can transform it into a precious heirloom that will be cherished for years to come!
