Vintage Box


Ok, so I know when you look at this photo what are you thinking?  
Heidi has lost her mind, why is she showing us trinkets and whatever?  

No- I had found a lady on Pinterest that got an old vintage pop crate and used watered down Gesso to paint it and then filled it with trinkets.  So I guess in a way you are right about the trinkets.    I went on a search for some old soda crates (they are hard to find!)  and was successful after spending 2 weeks trying to hook up with the guy that found me on Craigslist and traveing 40 minutes.  But I got it, I Gesso'd it and then I filled it up.  I do not know where I will hang it yet- but I am loving it.
