This case is my old beauty school equipment case from 1989. The case is still in good solid shape, along with all the hardware. It has been living life as my daughters play-doh holder for many years, still in great shape, but needed a new life.
For the lid, the first process was repeated, the insert was wrapped in batting and fabric and secured with stapes on underside, and glued back into lid. The outside of box was painted different shades of brown with black accents to age box. The hardware was painted copper and aged with black paint.
The legs are prefab plain wood legs that I purchased at Home Depot. Drilled holes in bottom of box for threaded screw in leg, but there wasn't enough room to add a nut, so glue, and an extra screw were added through box into leg for extra stability. The legs were painted white and aged with brown and black paint.
Love those pinterest ideas, have fun and dive in!!!
