DIY- Painted Box Makeover

Hello, wonderful readers! I hate that I have been so absent from Musings as of late. It has been a hectic couple of weeks, with some exciting work happening at NanoSteel, the snow, planning our upcoming trip to Vienna, and the BF being home from Texas for a few days. (Un)surprisingly, I get very little sympathy when I exclaim that I have anxiety from “being so far behind on my crafting.” I have a couple of projects that I have been holding back from sharing, and some new recipes on the docket, so hopefully next week I will have lots more to share with you.

Like Winnie the Pooh, a fan of “useful pots for putting things in,” I cannot help but accumulate little jars and boxes for all of my supplies, and thank goodness, because it looks like a Michael’s bomb went off in my kitchen as of late.

Taking old holiday boxes I found at Home Goods, and moving full steam ahead with my recent infatuation with the color pink, I painted put two coats of spray paint on both the lids and bases of the little boxes. Using my favorite acrylic gold leaf paint, I covered two more of my Toob world monument statues and hot glue gunned them to the top. Have my mentioned lately how life changing my glue gun has been?
