Some simple shadow boxes I made today, and with that being said my first project in 2013. Well I was deployed I had 3 flags flown for my wife and boys on their Birthdays. My youngest sons is in September and he was the first to receive his, my wife went to Michaels and picked up the shadow box and frame. After the other two showed up she was on vacation and then I came home shortly after and we never got around to pick some boxes up. I figured this would be a great way to start the year off with something simple. I took the original box (center of 2nd picture) and copied it, I changed them from the original but they are very similar.
I used some left of wood that I had laying around when I made planks for my kids bunk beds, chalkboard paint and then some clear coat. Nothing fancy but something to finally get them out of the boxes.
I will be making frames for the certificates that come with them in the near future and I hope to replace the store bought one from my wife with something a little more classy.
