Painted Vintage Sewing Box

 I found an interesting item at an auction recently. It's an accordion style sewing box. I had never even seen anything like it, but I liked it and bought it thinking I would paint it.

I sanded, primed, painted, and then distressed. It took a lot longer to paint than I thought it would.

 Here's how it looked when I bought it.

 The inside definitely needed  something done to it.

I added some cute paper using Mod Podge. I like it so much better. I almost thought about keeping it since my sewing box a quite a bit smaller.

 It is available in our Etsy Shop.

I just love old sewing notions. I got it all with the vintage sewing drawers at a resale shop last year. 
My favorite part of the box is the paper inside!
