Little treasures seem to always be the best when you can convert them into another treasure. I didn't have to manipulate this much. Just a little paint did the trick. I thought it was a coll find.
A wooden box with the word Armour.
Armour is protective gear also spelled armor. So I am assuming this is an old box that stored some protective gear maybe in war or maybe not. I wanted to change it up without messing with the character of the box.
I knew the words would stay but I thought it needed a little something. So the story I came up with in my mind was that during a battle this little wooden box held medical supplies for the wounded since there was no other storage to use. ( I know I have a weird imagination)
With a little dry brush on the sides with no words and something to make people aware of the importance of the box, it was transformed
I sanded over it to look more worn. I like the simplicity of it.
I think it would make a great conversational piece on a table or floor. The best thing is that it is storage!
Did you get any treasures this weekend?
