French Flower Box with Glass Knobs
I am actually doing two posts today in place of doing one tomorrow. I purchased this cubby box at a neighborhood sale quite a while back. It was painted lavender inside and out but was originally black. I repainted it black and found this graphic design on the Graphic's Fairy blog. I normally stencil my projects but did not have the proper size stencils to mimic her lettering and the printout was too wide to use my art projector so on this project I used the waxed tracing paper. I enlarged my Graphic's Fairy printout to fit the box and then I traced the lettering pattern on to the drawer fronts. When it was finished, I thought it needed something a little extra so I added some glass knobs to three of the drawers and left the others with no knobs as they really didn't need them anyway. The knobs just added a little extra. The box is still kind of a rough project from the layers of paint, but what garden project doesn't come out a little primitive?
