SuppliesAcrylic Paint / Patterning Tape / White Spray Paint / Wood Box*

*I got mine from Michaels.  I looked online and couldn’t find anything with the same look and that had a metal label holder.  But, if you are not by a Michaels or can only order online here is another wood box and some metal label holders.  Although it has a different look.

Step 1: Pop off the metal label holders.  This is super easy to do and they go back on easy because the wood is super soft.  Spray paint them white and leave them to dry.

Step 2: Next tape your box.  I wanted a triangle on the front of each of my boxes and wanted it to look the same with and without the lid on.  So first measure the middle of your box and tape off a triangle on the main box.  Then place the lid on top.  Measure the middle of the lid and then tape off another triangle having it match the on you already made.

Step 3: Then tape off the top of your box this is where you can get really creative with patterns.

Step 4: Now that all your shapes are taped off you are ready to paint.  I did about two coats. Let dry and then peal off all the tape.  Lastly take your spray painted metal label holders and push them back on.  And you are done!!  And your office and storage are that much cuter ;)
