I made my first sale on Etsy.com this week. It was unexpected, but just what I needed because I was about to give up on Etsy. Please note that I do accept commissions, especially when it comes to needlework. If you're interested you can request a custom item.
Here are some details on the new item, a keepsake box, that I listed today:
Restored, customized and hand painted jewelry or keepsake box. Found the box at a California Swap Meet and gave it a massive facelift, new knobs, screws, etc. It took some work, but it was worth it. Heavy, good quality wood.View additional images here. Thanks for taking the time to look through the shop.
Various painted patterns on outside include leaves, flowers, geometric patterns. Colors on the outside are gold, green, burgundy, orange, light blue, cream. Painted black on inside. Has intentional "distressed" or vintage look. Brass-style knobs.
Box has a sizable drawer and compartments which are perfect for jewelry. Enamel paint with satin finish. Dimensions are approximately 9 inches by 6.5 inches by 6 inches. Painted in smoke-free environment. Please note that I only use non-toxic paints which are made in the USA. In this case I used Deco Art Americana Gloss Enamel paints.
