I saw so many lovely home made bead boxes so I decided to make one for myself too. Very Happy

I bought a plain box and made some supports to put the rods for the beads in:

Home made bead box Predoos

I then white-washed it and put blue fabric in. Here is the box:

Home made bead box Doos

And here's the inside of the box and my small collection:

Home made bead box Binnendoos

It was fun to do, but a bit more work then I anticipated! I'm very happy with the end result though. Smile

cheers it is so beautiful - great work you did there cheers

I really like the blue fabric you put into the box - fabulous colour I love you

I would not mind having one of those myself Laughing so I might have to copy your efforts, if I can find a box for the purpose.

Thank you so much for sharing sunny

Thank you guys! Very Happy

Thanks, we live in the centre of Utrecht, a mote runs infront of our house. We have lived in the house for many generations, it's a lovely spot.

i did the same thing kimvw,

I saw it, it was lovely! Yours and other people's boxes inspired me to make my own box.

Thanks! Although I'm already thinking about making another beadbox. There isn't any space in this bead box for finished bracelets and my loopturners. Very Happy

That's very creative! I love the unaffectedness of the box. Though I myself would not have painted it either Wink

And you've got a fabulous spot for living. Wink Not very long ago I had an apartment a bit to the left at the other side of the water looking down on Graaf Floris and looking up at the Dom. I did have to get used to the carillon though... Bored little sleep...
