I wanted a hatbox to protect Blaze's hats during our move and found this one for $10 at Tuesday Morning.
It doesn't really look right sitting in his airship pirate theme bedroom, so over the past couple days, I've done something to fix that.
I cut out pictures from the pages we had already used on the Myke Amend calendar that hangs in the kitchen. I had been trying to think of a use for these pictures anyway, because they really are too cool to throw out at the end of the year. ( If you would like to look at or purchase the calendar for the coming year, it can be found here:
I attached the calendar art around the box using Modge Podge and coated the outside of the pictures with Modge Podge, as well.
I painted the lid with black, gloss acrylic paint. The black was chosen, because Blaze says that's his favorite color.
I added a strap, so the box could be carried more easily.
The holes for the strap are reinforced with metal eyelets.
Now, it fits in with it's surroundings.
