Easier said than done

I put the first coat of navy blue on the box, and it looks good. There was a bit of over spray on the back that I might have to sand off, but I will decide that later. I started to work on the handle. The strap idea was good, but the sewing just made it look less than perfect. I might have to go back to the drawing board for this one. The biggest problem is finding a handle material that is flexible and easy to work with. I have been trying to work with the handle frame in the old leather (a metal spring). That turned out to be the biggest headache. Maybe I should just replace the frame with something else. I could used rope or wires even. More brainstorms I guess.
