Unexpected idea, use this painted farmhouse storage box for a wedding card box.

What a fabulous idea. My nature box sold as a wedding card box.

Gorgeous Wedding Painted Card Box by Laurie Rohner Studio.

I am trying to sell my studio and house in Elkin NC so I can move my business, my favorite companion (Tuck a Standard Poodle), my adventurous life, my possessions (a bit too many) to a home in New Hampshire. While showing this home, a very nice woman who is an event planner for weddings looked at the painted nature box and remarked ” This would make a great card box for weddings”. I should get into that niche here. Great idea, unexpected idea,  since I am moving to New Hampshire. After many years trying to fit as an artist in the community here and never quite getting the feedback I wanted or needed to achieve what it is I intend in my life I am heading on. Just because I am moving does not mean the idea is not valid and I should consider it, so I have.

As you can see there is enough room inside to hold a nice collection of wedding money cards. When the wedding is over you have a gorgeous reminder of a special memorable day.

I painted the poplar wood a lovely shade of the softest creamy gray taupe white. I love this base color. To compliment the color I decided to use a subtle simple design with greens and white flowers that cascade down the front. The botanical woodland flowers are from hydrangea to Queen Ann’s Lace and Lily of the Valley. Easily compliments farmhouse cottage or loft decors.

Display it on a chest of drawers or table. Stuff it with journals or scarves or even in the bath with toiletries.

Great gift for the bride or wedding couple. Give it to your Mom for all the family memories. Makes a great housewarming and birthday gift,too.
