I love the number three!

Good morning!  It seems as if I'm thinking about using numbers when I craft, I always seem to go with the number three.  I have a little family of three....maybe that's why???  I don't know....I always seem to gravitate toward it.  Maybe it's more pleasing on my eye....??  Anyways, I recently redid this little box.  I do love boxes as well and this one has a nice shape.  It could be used to hold books, magazines, diapers, etc......Here she is before...

I gave it a coat of primer and then used two coats of white paint.  I created a number three stencil, which was made using my cricut machine.  I painted the number three in a light green color.  Lastly, I distressed the box to my liking.  Here is the after look.


Looking forward to a great weekend!  Hope you have one too!
