DIY Pretty Storage Box

I was soooo excited when I found this fabulous idea from Jen on!!!  Beautiful storage boxes!!!  I was searching and searching for a beautiful box that would match my family room decor and fit nicely on the built-in bookshelf.  I didn't want to spend a lot of money so when I came across her project, I was elated!!!

My project was free because I could shop my own basement for the box and paint, but she says you can find white boxes for about $3 or $4.

I got a couple of these boxes several years ago, probably at Dollar Tree.  I just pulled off the ribbon.

I spray painted two coats of this metallic finish paint.

And for the lid, I used the leftover paint that is on our walls!

I let it dry for a few hours on the porch and then added some washi tape (that I already had on hand) around the bottom.  Then my project was complete!!
