As soon as I saw this, I knew it was my style. I love the "old" look! Maybe it's because I'm old? lol.
This was a plain box in another life and has been turned into a real "treasure"!
Dawn Edmonson is a wonderfully creative person and shows how to make a box like this at The Feathered Nest.
I think you could make something like this with either a small or large box and it would look equally beautiful.
