Thank you for the nice replies! I had so much fun doing it!

Afterkate, feel free to make one of your own. I'd love to see it
once you finish with it. I does make saving just a little bit easier
when you have a special place to put it. Cheesy
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pirate Treasure Chest from a Plain Box on: May 30, 2008 03:44:54 PM
This is my first project post, so please be gentle. Smiley
My bf knows I like to play in my craft room and asked me if I would paint a box that he had to look like a treasure chest.

In the next photo you can see the real latch on the box, but to make it look like a treasure chest I had to paint a new lock on it. You know those sneaky pirates, they don't want to make it easy to get to their treasure!  Cheesy

Here is the lock! The straps are painted black, and I took a screwdriver and gouged  each side them to make it look a little be raised. Then I added gold beads to look like brads on the straps. Once I sprayed everything with polyurethane it looks much better.

Here is the Jolly Roger painted on top! You can see my messy craft table in the background and also the paper I was practicing on drawing him. He even has a patch over his eye.

I lined the inside of the box with red velvet. He added what he's been calling "me gold". Silver and gold dollars. It was a nice added touch.

That's the end! Please tell me what you think about it. He loves it, but since he likes me I think his opinion is biased! LOL  Cheesy

I know I'm just echoing everyone else, but what you're
doing is so incredibly sweet! I'm sure that every one of
the animals look forward to your visits and attention.

This is impressive! People spend thousands of dollars on
dresses that don't look half as good as your 10 dollar
Very creative!!

That turned out so pretty! The shine of the silver is
perfect with your colors and I really like the shape of
it along with your lightning bolt Christmas lights.
It all looks so upbeat and happy!
