Shadowbox Frame

I really like finding old shadowboxes when I'm out thrifting because they are so much fun to repurpose.

I've posted a couple of shadowbox projects in past posts.

This old seed box......
became a display for vintage sewing notions.
And this little shadowbox......
was turned into a display shelf for vintage shaving brushes.
A couple of weeks ago I found this little shadowbox frame.
Not loving the seashells and flowers but I had a plan.

A little paint, a little distressing, some old watch parts and a graphic from The Graphics Fairy.
 A new look for the old shadowbox frame.
I'm linking to some great parties:

White Wednesday with Kathleen @ Faded Charm
and 
Wow Us Wednesday with Kim @ Savvy Southern Style

Happy Wednesday!

Jane

  6. It amazes me how you always find things that FIT what you have!

    The clock shadow box reminds me of the old Jim Croche(?) song...If I could put time in a bottle...

  16. Your shadowboxes are, actually, pieces of art. I just bought a couple deep frames at a garage sale and you are inspiring me to get busy and do something with them.
