Painted Boxes

I love painted boxes of all kinds! I collect old boxes - I don’t know why, but they just speak to me. I envision who used them in the past and what kinds of things might have been packed into them over the years. From old shipping crates, beverage crates, to chalk boxes and pencil cases – they all have a story to tell, don’t they?

My boxes are papier mache and undergo a four-step process of aging and finishing. In the end, they look old but will actually last for years with a little care along the way. Each box is hand painted especially for you, in colors and designs of your choosing. Custom orders are non-returnable, but I spend time with you by phone or email to make sure I know exactly what you want before I get started on your order. In general, hand painted boxes start at about $25.00 for a small box and increase in price depending upon the size, the design and the number of boxes in a set.

Here you will find some examples of just a few of the boxes I have painted for customers. I would love to paint some for you, too!

As always, feel free to contact me if you have questions or want to chat about painted boxes! Wholesale terms available.
