Back in the summer you may remember I bought a new table and chair set for our eating area, which displaced our antique pew that ended up fitting perfectly in our entry way hall. The only downside to this shuffle was that we lost some storage space. So up until now I had been using a couple of large baskets to keep our "junk" in under the pew. The baskets just weren't cutting it, so I decided to take these four boxes my dad had gifted to me and give them a little makeover....
The boxes were just cheap veneered wood, and had seen better days. So I knew I wanted to paint them. I added the numbers for a bit of a utilitarian industrial look. I wasn't sure at first if this was going to jive, but the risk paid off in the end.
If you want to try this out. Here is what I did:
I used Avery white mailing label printer sheets (#05165) to print out my numbers. I chose a font that was going to be thick to get the desired effect, so keep this in mind. Then I cut the numbers out and stuck them to the box.
Make sure your box is clean and dry before applying the numbers.
After the number is placed grab your spray paint. Once the paint dries peel off your number. Ta da you'r done!
These boxes would look great in a kid's room, or a craft room. They are perfect for those areas that lack storage.
The storage boxes are part of a more concentrated hallway redesign.... After I had put the boxes in place, Clayton hung this great vintage task lamp above the two prints. This light works great in the space, since we had no other alternative lighting and there was no where to place a lamp. There is only one more project to do to complete our hallway transformation, but so far it's looking just as I had hoped!
