an altered baseball card box

Believe it or not, baseball cards originally came in this box. 

One pack.

Of very expensive baseball cards.

2009 National Treasures box
It's a really nice box--wooden, with hinges--AND since we have a baseball card store, I like to keep some of the fun stuff and repurpose them for other things.  Today's redo started with some DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish paint in Refreshing and a Creme Wax finish:

A tea related collage image, and . . .
Voila!  A "tea chest".  This will be used at an upcoming baby shower for, well, teabags, of course.  There's another quote on the inside of the lid.  I like to think of it as a functional decoration.  You can find more details at Altered Pages.
