Three drawers wooden box with owls for boys

This is my second project for the September challenge - NUMBERS - of Country View ChallengesYou can also enter with your own number projects and if you are lucky enough you can have a £20 voucher.

This shabby chic wooden box has an older sister in pink I had made for my daughter. But this box was made for one of my nephews and I'm sure I have to make another one for my other nephew as well - avoiding the quarrels between the boys :-)

The basic is a wooden box that I painted white first, after I sanded a little bit, then I put on a very-very light blue layer.

I sanded the edges.

I cut out the owls from a paper napkin and I glued with decoupage glue on the surfaces.

I used Sizzix Sizzlits Wanted Alphabet Die by Tim Holtz to cut out the numbers from a plain brown paper napkin. Generally you have to use one layer of the napkin to glue but now I glued two layers of napkins to achieve darker colour numbers.

In the end I painted Ranger Distress Crackle Paint (Clear Rock Candy).
