Here is the first of the weekend projects that I was able to accomplish. I bought this little wood shadowbox from the Unique Thrift Stores last week. It was just a plain pine box. I decided to give it a French-y makeover:
I gave it a couple of coats of white paint. While that was drying, I used some French script scrapbook paper for my background. Then I popped over to The Graphics Fairy and printed out some random French images. The Eiffel Tower is actually from a necklace I got at Forever 21 a couple of years ago. My boys love that I used Scrabble pieces to spell out Paris.
There is another small charm on the lower right corner - not sure if you can see it. It has a cameo look to it. The finishing touches were Marie Antoinette and the hand-stamped little French crown at the top.
I love the touch of French whimsy it adds to my livingroom!
