to make it into a card box? My father won a wooden treasure chest filled with various prizes at an office party. He’s willing to sacrifice it for our card box but I’m lost for ideas of how to dress it up for a chic-vintage-glam wedding,
Any thoughts? We are as far away for a nautical/beach wedding as anyone could be, But I love the symbolism of treasure.

It’d be super cute to prop it open with a stick and have some necklaces and rings glued to the edges so it looked like it was bulging with treasure. Something a bit like this but with it only around the edges.

If you are looking to go more chic than beachy, why not paint it a solid color like white, gold or silver? That’ll give it more of the shabby chic look instead of a wooden earthy look.
If you left it open, would people know it was a treasure chest? Or would they just think it was a wooden box?

I agree that painting it would give it a new look. By the way, I love all things pirate-related, so this is an awesome idea!!!
