I didn't make the boxes (I got it Michaels...that place is a candy store!!) but i worked my bum off painting them!! Smiley

You can't really tell but after I painted the boxes yellow I sealed it with glaze mixed with PearlEx. It gives the boxes kind of a rustic, worn look but they also shine a little bit of gold. Just like the Yellow Brick Road!!


The front.


The back view (the other side is plain as well)


I opted to keep the insides natural wood so that if anything is kept inside there is no worries of it sticking to glaze or paint. I did paint and glaze the lips of the boxes, though.


The first thing I did was paint between the "bricks" a darker color than the rest of it so they'd pop out more.


This shot is more for my benefit. Smiley
This is the top of one of the boxes with my mom's Dorothy Tonner Doll standing on them.

I'm quite pleased with how they came out!! I'm not much of a painter and I'm still in craft-shock they came out the way I imagined!

Fantabulistic! I really like how you made them look rustic. It's difficult to convey just how big they are by the photos, but they're huge and will hold lots of Oz goodies! Toto-ly Oz-some job!  Grin

Thank you! I'm glad you like them, especially since you're stuck with one of them. ^_^
