I painted this the other night.  I felt like painting, but didn't want to get into anything too complicated, so I grabbed a small brush and painted a little forest of leafless trees.  
I had the wooden tissue box holder in my stash, already with the blue stain on it. (Water based stain from a company called SamaN)
I used masking tape to define the border, then painted a white line along the edge of the masking tape. To create a bit of depth I did the background trees in a washed-out white, then the foreground trees in the full-strength white. It's nothing too special... but its prettier than the plain old tissue box.  Undecided

This is great!  I have only ever seen a few tissue box covers that I thought attractive at all and this is probably the most attractive one in my memory.  Now I need to find a blank like this.  Or two.
