“Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming is dead, no one does it anymore. It’s not dead it’s just that it’s been forgotten, removed from our language. Nobody teaches it so nobody knows it exists. The dreamer is banished to obscurity. Well, I’m trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming. Every day.”

Elder Sign (Custom Box) by ryoshi-un
Elder Sign (Custom Box)
Just in time for a Christmas project!

The Missus is a huge Lovecraft fan, so I bought her an Elder Sign game for Christmas, but I really thought I could improve the box it came in.
As usual, I used slats I salvaged from crates, because I currently don't have the means to work the thickness of the wood.

The fasteners and hinges I had bought online didn't fit very well, so I had to use regular ones, plus a couple of fake ones I made from cardboard.

I aged everything with the old vinegar + steel wool trick (I like to add a bit of coffee to it as well), then sanded unevenly, added the postage stickers and apllied a couple of coats of matte varnish, just to preserve the wood. The worn out look was very important. I chose not to age the inside containers, though, cause I liked the contrast.

And there it is! =D
Hope you get inspired by it and make your own version!
