Well, I haven't posted in awhile and though I usually am a sewer, I like to do lots of crafts too. I discovered pictures of this project on my computer the other day. They are of a poolball-themed box I made for my ex-boyfriend about a year ago (we played pool a lot) when we had our 6 month anniversary. Now that we are broken up, I kind of wish I had it back because I like it so much  Smiley .

This is the top of the box. I saw the box at Michael's and it reminded me of those wooden things you use to set up your pool balls. First thing I did was stained the box. I then got a bunch of sphere halves and painted them with the correct colors, stripes/solids, and numbers. After that I sprayed them with some varnish to make them nice and shiny.

This is the inside of the box. I covered the bottom in green felt like the surface of a pool table. I just cut the felt to the correct shape and put some spray glue down in the bottom of the box and placed the felt on top.

This is just a close-up of the inside.

Any comments/constructive criticism is appreciated. It was a pretty easy project so I recommend it to anyone. I don't know if it may be hard finding that shape box though. I haven't seen any since I bought that one last summer. Well have a nice day, everybody!  Smiley
