Celebrate the great British summer with this understated nautical box in natural colours, a pretty storage for your jewellery, hair pins, make-up, or to keep your loose change or your mail stamps...
For this lightweight wooden box (empress wood), I have chosen some lovely green sea shells for the front and a coral and green nautical strip of paper for the top which I applied with a decoupage technique. I completed with a reddish brown and white check border around the lid to add some contrast. The painted background is country cream, except for the lid which has received a light wash of sage green. Finished in satin varnish on top and matt varnish everywhere else. I have left the inside natural, apart from the "rose des vents" in the lid.
Here are these all important dimensions:
18 cm x 9.5 cm x 8 cm (7.1" x 3.6" x 3.5")
Whether you decide to place it your bedside table or in your home office with your small stationery inside, this little box is sure to become a home essential.
I found this nautical paper rather unusual as to its palette, which made an interesting change from the classic blue, white and red nautical colours and might fit in better with other interior colour schemes.
The simplicity of this box reflects the relaxed mood of the holiday season. Time to put your foot on the break, start winding down and enjoy the good weather while there is some!
