My littlest guy had a Pirate party.. arrrgh!
So of course, we did everything ourselves at my sweet little church.. But of course, you know how much work goes into creating a kids' party.. So here is one of the first things we made:
A Pirate Treasure Box!
The box was something that I bought at a garage sale for $5 a few years ago that was just collecting dust in the basement.
So I painted it black.
but I left the inside the original yellow color cause I like it! (and I was being a BIT lazy)
And then I painted it with crackle medium (which didn't really work.. so maybe I did it wrong but I did follow the directions!)
Then I got busy doing other things since I can't seem to focus on ONE project at a time so the last picture is the finished chest! After the crackle I added brown paint and belts to the front to close it and belts to the sides for handles (I got the belts for $2 at a flea market)
It looked great at the party.. and it stored all of our pirate gear.. ARRGH!
