Painting Another Box for a boy

First I started by taking off all the hardware on the box to get it ready for painting.

Next,  I painted the box a cherry red.  I needed to add two to three more colors.  The colors chosen were green, orange and white.  Using the three colors orange, green and white I decorated the top of the box with various sizes of circles.  Once that was all dry the whole box was given several layers of varnish.  

Now it is ready to go under the tree!

    I wish I had something like this as a kid. Verses a shoe box.
