Hi Lorraine,

What a sweet Valentine box and thanks for sharing this tutorial of a lovely project.


I love that painted finish - and your how-to! I never saw milk paint up close and the heating/crackling idea may give me incentive now to try it one of these days.

A beautiful project, thanks for sharing.


your bird box is stunning lorraine! please bring your box, milk paint, and wax to art group this week, i would love to see them up close and check out your supplies.
thank you for such a lovely and clear tutorial, i am so inspired by the loving beauty of your creations.

Hi Lorraine, this little altered box is beautiful. Thank you for the tutorial. I'm going to try these out. Such a special way to gift someone!

That is so lovely...what a beautiful treasure you have now.

Lorraine you box id Fabulous!!! Don't you just love BriWax? I've never tried milk paint. Now I'm intrigued. I am going to try it! Thanks for the tip and your sweet comment! Happy Valentine's Day.

Hi, Lorraine! I'm so glad you dropped by my blog. What a nice comment! I don't have any art in a gallery but hope to sell on ebay, esty and who knows, perhaps a gallery someday. Right now I'm just trying to paint!

Your blog is so pretty!!! I really enjoyed the box tutorial...it's beautiful. I'll be back. Happy Valentine's!

Gorgeous box, perfect Artful Thursday project, thanks for sharing!

Lorraine amor, what a beautiful tutorial, I am going to print it out, but because I am SUCH an art novice in so many ways...I need to know...the box, did it come like that with all the designs around it? and where did you find it? I loved it...where do you get milk paint, bri-wax and German glitter :) sorry but also what brands of milk paint, told you I am a novice :) I would love to try this, I have a little card board box that I bought but it is plain on the outside, maybe I can glue something textured on the outside when I do mine..Thank you for sharing this beautiful tutorial :) Thinking of you, amor y besos, Rose

What a pretty box. Thanks for the tutorial!
AND for stopping by my blog. I think I probably will paint my bed. If it ever warms up around here!

this is so sweet... and happy valentine's day to you my friend... xo

Gorgeous! Lovely! Swoony. :)

Lorraine, that is so beautiful!!! they never had cute birds like that at my michaels...but, i haven't been there for a while...maybe they do now...i will have to look next time i am there...i love how you used the old hat netting too, that is so clever and it looks fantastic!!!

thanks so much for stopping by Farmhouse..
so good of you to visit and say HI.....

Oh, I love this post! LOVE IT!! Because...wrapping gifts is one of my least favorite things to do because I can't think of a way to do it creatively. I loved that you show how to do this and also that you let us know where you buy some of your supplies. That is so helpful - I just get overwhelmed with all the supplies out there! Thank you so much!!! Hugs, Silke

That is absolutely beautiful!!!! I want to live on that box with that bird!!!!! Stay strong, hugs are sent your way.

Ohhhh, that is the prettiest thing ever! I would love to receive something so pretty! Come say hi :D

Hi sweet Lorraine! This creation is just beautiful to me!!!! I love the effect the milk paint has and the Briwax too! I've got to find that stuff....So gorgeous!! I hope you are doing good sweetie, hugs and love, Dawn

This is so pretty, I love the painted finished on the box.

Your box is gorgeous! I've never heard of bri-wax, where do you find that?
Cerri xoxo
