French Romance in a Box

I love all things French and when they're shabby chic and French...all the better! So, of course, this was my inspiration for this box. Before it was a beat up, blue painted, chipped box. I had to sand it (it was quite lumpy in spots) and then I painted it with Old White chalk paint. I wanted to give it an old antique look so I distressed it with sand paper and then Tim Holtz distress ink. Stamped it, added the painted embellishment and Viola!

The inside it covered in my favorite "go to" paper -- velvet paper. You can get it at JoAnn Fabrics for $1.99 a sheet. Love it!
