My handpainted Nursery Rhyme Barn box

I've had this box base coated and the patterns transfered on for years. I decided I needed to paint it and get it out of my craft room. It also helped me clean up my acrylic paint rack. I threw away more than I kept. I haven't painted on wood in years so felt like a beginner. Its not great but its done. 8>). Still needs to be sprayed with a sealer coat which usually brings out the colors also. I told Don he could do that. The box from a corner angle. When all the pictures were painted, I put a pueblo red stripe down each corner and the ends of the roof. Then I dry brushed some white over it so it blended in better. I've been painting on this for a week and am so glad to have it finished.

It has 7 nursery rhymes on it. Now what do I do with it?

Mother Goose on the lid.
Three little kittens and Miss Muffit.
Little boy blue on the back.
Little old woman who lived in a shoe & Ride a cock horse.
