When Maggie's husband brought home a plain, unfinished box, she knew it needed a little something to make it cute. We knew that this idea from Crafty Nest would be perfect for gussying it up! Since she had plans to use it in her kitchen to hold pens and pencils, Maggie turned to the tiled wall there for color inspiration (when they first moved in her family thought it was kinda goofy, but now it's one of their favorite features of the house!).
And the blue doily-thing we found just happened to be the perfect shade! Like in our original inspiration, we were planning on painting over it, but since the color was so cute we decided to change the project up a bit to show it off! Unfortunately, the pics don't show the color very well! But trust us - it's a deep, pretty blue!
What You Need:
- plain box
- doily or lace trim
- craft glue
- waxed paper
Pick up the waxed paper with the doily still on it and place it on your box where you want to doily to sit. Then (with the waxed paper still on) press and smooth down your doily firmly. Gently peel back the wax paper.
