Re-Altered Box

This month's theme over at Alter-It-Monthly is "boxes", and although I had lots of different boxes to choose from, I settled on this one, because frankly, it just needed a new make-over!!!!
So here is the "old" (It was originally a green metal, which I painted and decorated over 6 years ago!):

And after a couple of coats of matt medium, and some acrylic paint and some texture paste (using a 6"x6" Crafters template) :

Some more acrylic paint, and lots of drying time...




Now I don't have to hide it any more LOL...
Thanks for visiting, I hope you come back soon, until then, have a creative day : )
