Shabby Chic Photo Box

By Lena Astafeva


“I’ve made box for old and family photos. From inside the cover of the box has a frame. You can put any photo in it. My dad was fond of photography. Therefore, in our family, there are a lot of old photographs. We carefully store them. Now a small part of the photos will be stored in this wonderful box.” ~Lena
