I Just Finished Melanie's Marie Boudoir











I just finished this Marie Boudoir, which was for a swap with the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. I used a vintage cigar box, which I painted and covered in beautiful papers. Then made a shelf and made rooms. I used 4 copies of the images to build out the furniture. It is very dimensional. I really enjoyed making this for Melanie. Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Terri, I have a bunch of cigar boxes but I have a silverware keeper that I have stripped down to do something with. What a great idea! You always have wonderful ideas but this one is special. I love the details and the interiors. Great job!!!
