She’s in college and recently joined a sorority and i thought I would cobble together a little box and paint with Tri-Sigma Greek lettering, colors and symbol.

We will then take it outside where the light is perfect and make sure that we have all the scratches out of it. The colors look dull but once we spray it they will stand out.
