Because you are treasured...

As you know, Jack loves to play dress up. He loves funky hats, boots, and costumes of all sorts. Usually, it is some combination of all of the above resulting in an irresistable concoction that brings back memories of The Village People. For Christmas, our dear boy is going to get a dress up box filled with all kinds of wonderful costumes to indulge his creative spirit. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what kind of box would hold all of these wonderful things and it hit me! A treasure chest, of course! I searched high and low for a weathered old chest that could be made over to be something special. So here begins my journey.
A coat of antique gold spray paint begins the transformation(and my index finger is still numb this morning, but what is a little nerve damage, right?)
By now it is sunset and I am feverishly hand glueing on tons of acrylic jewels. If you look closely, you can still see the fresh glue!
And the finished product! A treasure for my treasure!
