Chalk paint/decoupage Enigma machine

It’s a plain pine box painted with graphite Chalk Paint (Annie Sloan). I used découpage glue to give it a ‘hammered metal’ effect by stippling the glue on quite thickly and then clear waxed over the top. I used a little dark (brown) wax too and lightly distressed the box to mimic age. Not a great fan of  découpage but I was quite pleased with the end result. Just a bit of fun – will make a nice prop, in the shop, for my books. I wonder what else I can find to stick bits of paper to?
