I have been following Julianna on You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/user/ILuvVintageScrap
Love her projects. Never heard of Shabby Chic before her. Her projects are absolutely georgous, and wow she can find heck of bargins at her thrift stores. You all should check her out.
I took a box that you could hang keys in and holds letters, and fixed it up. Really like the way it turned out. Makes me look at those goodwill items more carefully. Used trims from karlas001.etsy and some from Hobby Lobby. Box was painted metallic pink from folk art, then applied elmers glue and painted ivory over it. Didn't crack as well as I would have liked, but it turned out nice. I made the flowers from some trims, and old earring I found at goodwill. Used I am Roses, and made a couple stick pins.
Really hope she likes the box, can't wait til she receives it.
here are some pics and the video on you tube.
