Once upon a time, I had an ugly plain wooden box lying around. I was feeling
restless creative and decided to paint it bright orange. It reminded me of Hermes – and the beautiful boxes Hermes items are packed in. So I decided to go super chinese and create a vintage looking Hermes trunk/bedside table/storage unit.
Still life surprise in the house waiting for Mom to get back from Miami.
Box created using:
Plain pine wooden box. Box painted using a mixture of bright orange and bronze acrylic paint to create the perfect shade. Details (Hermes Logo) in dark brown – hand painted with a super fine brush. Golden trunk locks and hinges used for vintage trunk like look. The box is sealed using paraffin wax making it resistant to mug/glass stains and any liquid spills.
