I just LOVED how this fun crafted shadowbox turned out.

Pink and Plum Plant Box

I love keep wood natural whenever possible, so I painted the exterior of the box with a soft peachy pink color and the very top of the box with a pretty plum acrylic paint.  I left the entire inside of the box it’s natural raw wood color.

And how fun are these pictures… I just placed my plant shadowbox right on top of a whole Monstera Leaf and it almost matches up perfectly – ha.

I also thought using a silk fern leaf would be so elegant instead of the monstera leaf.  Maybe painting the box in shades of green, too.
