I did this project a few years ago....I thought I would share with you. It started out a plain wood box. I fist painted it black, then put on a crackle medium. after it was dry I painted it white....I hated it. I tucked it away somewhere for awhile. I stumbled across it one day and yes I still hated it. I used a stencil and some kind of medium that was the in thing back then, to make raised stencil....If any one remembers what it is please comment... Then I used a copper color on the stars, and used a stain on the rest of the box. I like it now. I'm glad I didn't toss the box!
