Painted furniture farmhouse painted shelf with garden flowers hand painted in watercolor and illustrated by hand with ink. A wide variety of garden flowers and botanical wildflowers adorn the sides and back panel. While the entire shelf is painted white I added a hint of blue sky washed all over this fun wonderful farmhouse shelf. On each peg I painted a forget-me-not flower. I hand distressed the shelf to give it a time worn look.
Some of the flowers I painted are butterfly bush. hollyhock, larkspur, and coneflowers but there are more to discover. Of course there is a bumble bee too.
I custom designed this hand made painted shelf from 3/4 stock furniture grade pine. The decorative sides are cut on my bandsaw. Pegs are sturdy ready to hold anything. The back I placed hooks for easy hanging. The painted shelf is lacquered and hand waxed.

This box is custom made, hand painted a wide variety of botanical garden flowers all over it, and comes with an easy lift-off lid that works front to back, don't you love it?
I have created a keepsake hand painted box for my farmhouse painted furniture collection.
The flowers painted with watercolor after sketching them on the box and I finished the wildflowers with ink illustration. The inside is painted a cheerful light spring green.
I slightly distressed the work for that worned farmhouse look. Love it!
The keepsake box is a nice size to add your treasures too.
Great to give as a birthday, housewarming, wedding gift or have a custom box made with the flowers from your wedding.
Boxes are timeless.
You can never have too many boxes...right?
