Here is the box in all it's ugliness...
Here's a quick step by step guide if you're keen to do something similar...
You will need;
tools to remove metal findings
2 paint colours
Step 1 - Remove all hinges, screws, chains etc.
Step 2 - Give the whole box a bit of a sand to help the new paint stick.
Step 3 - Choose your 2 paint colours and paint two coats of the undercoat colour.
|I chose a really light peachy pink as my undercoat|
|240 Grit sandpaper|
Step 7 - re-attach the hinges, screws, chain etc
|And here's the finished project... :)|
As mentioned before I will re-purposing my box. So... watch this space. I will be using it in a few months and will post pics of the final product.
Ok... that's all for now... :)
