Pretty Storage Box

on May 24, 2015

My daughter’s done school for the year which means she has much more spare time. She took a plain old storage box (no before picture) and really made it pretty. All you need to do this is a cardboard box (the kind you can find at a dollar or discount store), some spray paint and a bit of lace fabric.

I happened to have this piece of lace from an old skirt.


She wanted to change the original colour of the box so she spray painted the entire thing with a base coat in grey. Lay the fabric over the box and use a complimentary or contrasting colour to spray the material. Once the fabric is removed you have something like this.


It’s so pretty and fits nicely into the decor of her room.
