Gettin Crafty....agate box love

Agate Boxes | Gold & Smoke

I stumbled upon this gorg agate box a few weeks ago....and have been dying to have one of my own since.  There was no way my pocket book was going for the price tag of $165 or $235 (seriously?).  So, I decided to attempt to make one for myself....I stopped by Michaels for a few supplies (box and agate) and got busy during snack time.

I'm not the only one that has a variety of spray paint on hand, right?

Got these beauties for just $3...booyah!! 

Started by spraying the bottom black.  BTW, I'm completely obsessed with black right now...I'm sure I'll start infusing it into each room in our home. 

I chose to spray the whole top gold...but now I'm wishing the did the sides black.... 

I can't believe how quickly I finished...not to mention for less than $5, have wannabe box I've been coveting!  I might redo this again with a different shaped wooden box.  Thinking an octagon or triangle maybe?
