An Old Box with a little Bling

Good morning!  It's Thursday and a very nice day here in Michigan.  I'm home from our camp and trying to get a few things organized and cleaned.  Found this old partitioned wood box at an estate sale and thought it looked kinda of old and interesting.  I didn't really want to paint the whole box because I liked the grayness of the wood but I still wanted a little color.  Here is a picture of the box but I had already painted a little kilz paint in the inside.

The box is definitely old and you can see the cracks and old nails in the wood.

I wanted to clean up the inside to keep things cleaner in the box, so I decided on a few fun colors to paint the inside with. 

I painted up the sides of the inside of the box and all the boxes.  I choose a lavender, aqua, a celery green and a pink. Kinda of girl's colors but I think it works.
 As you can see it is old, look at the big cracks on the bottom of the box.

How do you like this box, better or should I have left it alone?  Until next time, Dianne..........
