I had stumbled across this video and it inspired me to try getting some of these boxes for myself and giving them a new lease of life.
Once I had painted them using the same white chalk paint I used this video for inspiration as to the surface decoration. I loosely followed along with her and use a combination of cotton buds (as recommended) and small paintbrushes for the more detailed work. I only did one side of each box and did both at once, it took me the length of her video to come up with something I liked.
Once everything was dry I added the gold top edge (because I can’t get enough gold!) and then waxed them the same way Chelsey does.
We are using these on our wedding bars to hold jam jars of paper straws and napkins (for those little spills) and to generally corral all of the junk you need for a bar. Hopefully the photo bombing dog will be safely away buy then!
I love to be creative but sometime I find myself in a rut and being heavily inspired by other people is the only way out of it. Stealing with pride right!
Where do you go for some DIY inspiration?
