Prettying up my oxide box

Still playing catchup on this blog of my makes this week. This time it's a box I decorated as I decided a plain wooden box from the works that I use to store my distress oxides and pan pastels needed a make over.
This is just one of the things I really enjoy doing. No stamping on this one, for a change. Just embossed card stock and some die cuts. A bit of metal on the corners and a wooden key. Some paint and other mediums of course - all Decoart.
Hard to get the darker colour it really is the light is not the best this time of year in Scotland and even daylight bulbs aren't working :(

other side

I guess the pictures of the sides might give a better idea

Not much else to tell. I have a few more to do - I have decided to do different themes on them all - just to add some variety

Thanks for looking
