This lovely little piece was given a playful update making it a truly one of a kind functional piece of art. First, white birch inlay was added in a signature chevron pattern to the table top. Then a colorful boutique paper insert was created for the bottom of the box. Bands of color were then applied to the box and stand to reflect the colors of the paper insert. Then the box was painted white with gold accents and the top was stained to match the rest of the piece. A bright funky faux bois pattern was then carefully hand painted on the bottom shelf and inside the box top. For a finishing touch, the original hardware was replaced with a couple of Ripe Mellon Pulls from Anthropologie and stripes were hand-painted where the box nests into the stand, so you get a pleasant surprise when the box is removed. If this piece makes you even half as happy as it makes me, then my design goal has been accomplished!
