Don’t underestimate the importance of a shadow box. It is a place where you can display some valuable and important objects to you and your family and it can be beautiful and rather inexpensive wall decor.
As most of you know, my grandfather was a jewelry designer. He made some incredible designs that need to be shown when not worn. I found these shabby shadow boxes w/ latch at Pottery Barn months ago and they finally just arrived. Seems they are on sale at the moment.
I love using a large box so it looks prominent. You can certainly find these at your craft store, but chances are they may be simple & black. In that case I’d play with Chalk Painting them to create a real look.
I promise I’ll take pix once they are properly hung!
My daughter’s beloved “Bunny” will be preserved in at shadow box once he is finished being cuddled. That could be a while.
