Why didn't I try this sooner??

I bought some of those stackable cardboard boxes, oh, maybe 6 or 7 years ago with the intention of painting them in primitive style but the olde procrastination gene kicked in until yesterday when I decided, enough is enough! I can do this and if I mess it up, its not the end of the world...so I painted them all black first, made up some stencils I liked...
...painted on the stencil, rubbed candle wax all over, wiped gel stain over that and what do you know...
They actually turned out far better than I had even expected! Procrastination, out the window!
(the red isn't at all accurate...I think its because of the flash)
