New DIY project

Don’t know if the work constitutes as a DIY because of the minimality of it’s labour and creativity. It’s a vintage Johnny Walker wooden box that I got at the flea market (theres only one in Reykjavík). I’m going over it with sandpaper to get rid of the letters and the figure with the top hat and cane. Then I’m gonna paint it with white stain varnish to give it a more romantic and vintage-y sort of look. It’s new role will be to keep herbs, to give a notion of a garden feel for my balcony.
Here are some photos for my inspiration.
What is it about wooden boxes that appeals to me? They are just… so… I don’t know, not plastic?
They certainly do not give that feel of mass production that polyester and cardboard boxes do.
Wood and greenery. The sight just makes me feel like taking a deep breath and sigh :) Tutorial to follow.
