This is a set of 3 fabric covered stacking boxes.

Handmade by me.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy
I covered two of the paper mache' boxes with fabric.
They are done in a coordinating fabrics.
Reproduction blue and white ticking design fabric and a blue and white calico fabric.
The center box I painted a wonderful aged black.

 A Primitive Place ~Tammy
These are made to look old and worn.
The inside of all three boxes have been painted an aged black.
I think these turned out so good.
I love them.
Stacked they have a total height of 12.5".
And the largest box measures 10" across.

Just listed in my Etsy Shop.

Awesome.. I love them..
About a year ago oneof our craft stores Pat Catan's closed old store to open a larger one. They had this awesome sale where you could fill a store cart(extra large carts) with anything for $100. Smile...I'm a great packer so managed to get over $800 worht of goodies for $100. one of the things I got was like 25 boxes of 3stacking boxes each. I've always painted them but this is an adorable idea I never considered. Thinkin I could cover a few little ones to include in some of my gatherings. That would be so cute.

You should have no trouble selling them they're beautiful!!

Tammy what a wonderful job on the boxes.
I used to cover them and sell them too - but ran out and then got a HUGE supply and now they sit!

Seeing yours makes me want to start working on mine again.
