Vintage Wooden Box Restored
Restored vintage wooden box.
Size: W33cmx D22cm x H25cm approx.
I found this box in a flea market in need of some tlc.
The box was covered in very dark brown varnish. I therefore sanded it down extensively to bring it back to the original wood.
I then gave it 2 coats of bees wax to protect it.
I painted the inside a vintage sage colour to give it a fresher and cleaner look.
The box shows signs of wear and tear, which is to be expected being so old.
Also one side was probably damaged at some point, but I repaired it and it shows slightly without affecting the overall look and function.
The top of the box is slightly bowed, but I think this only adds to its rustic character.
