Mini writing desk

I picked up this little desk at a yard sale a few weeks ago, and it is the perfect size to hold stamps, pens and/or stationary. I painted the box "Blue Heaven" and crackled it with an overlay of "Antique White" paint. Then I rubber stamped a script image using the Memories "Sepia" ink. I added some real used stamps and stamped postage symbols in black ink. The vintage image was crackled using a rubber stamp with blue ink & finally the gold dragonfly was glued on using "Goop" glue. I could load this box up with hand-made papers & envelopes, tie a blue organza bow around it & gift it to somebody special!
Update: This little writing desk has become my brother's most prized possession! He is thrilled to have it and still can't believe I made it look old from new materials. :-)
