A couple of weeks ago, I finally got to go shopping in a place I could get some art supplies. I was going through some stuff in my room a few weeks prior and had found a few small wooden boxes that I think I had gotten several years ago with the intention of painting them to use as gifts. I found that I didn’t really have much acrylic craft paints left, so I decided to put off doing something with them until I could go shopping (the nearest town we can get crafting supplies is an hour away).
For the first box, I decided to take a design I had seen in a wallpaper and free-hand it onto the box. I first painted a base coat of the bottom color and then painted over it with a navy blue. Although I am very happy with the end result, it was definitely a bit of a challenge- I probably should have chosen an easier pattern! The whole box (I painted the top and all four sides) took me at least 5 hours to paint.
The box is a perfect size for storing some small notebooks I have and I love the pop of color it adds to my bedroom! And it was really nice to get back to creating and painting.
