|two tramp art pieces made out of cigar boxes|
After giving the bench a good scrub, I painted it with a satin black paint I had left over from another project. I like to use a satin paint to decoupage over because the decoupage "goop" is shiny too so a satin paint helps hide any mistakes.

Like I said, I am always on the look out for cigar boxes and tins when I am out junking, so you can just imagine the happy dance going on in my head when I found this a couple of years ago at an estate sale.
A wonderful little cabinet of drawers made out of ..... you guessed it... cigar boxes! Each drawer has a red celluloid pull, and a little tin "holder" so the maker would know what was in each drawer. A couple of them still have a nail in them . There are black glass drawer pulls on each side to carry the chest with , and it is all edged with galvanized tin held in place with lots and lots of tacks.
I think this is my best find ever........what's yours? What made your heart sing?
