Sneak Peek Project #4 Completed



With a little touch of paint, the box above was transformed into a little pink delight (see below). Back in February, I was planning on switching my kitchen style from traditional to shabby, but I really like my traditional kitchen. So for now it staying traditional. When I bought this box, I orginally bought it for the shabby conversion, and I also orginally planned on painting and decaling it. Now good things shouldn't go to waste, so I found another good use for it. I'm going to use it in my gazebo (or covered patio) and store plastic utensils, paper plates, and napkins inside of it. Handy, huh? It's a perfect outdoor storage.







I am very pleased with the results. Simple but definitely pink and shabby. I painted it with Krylon's Ballet Slipper pink, added a rose decal on front, sprayed a clear coat on it, and added a pink glass knob. That's it. Shouldn't all projects be like that? Easy Peasy?

Well, let's hope the next project will be easier. So until next time, stay tuned for my next project post.

This is so beautiful! I love it! What a great idea too, to use it like you are planning! Are those decals hard to use?

Thank you Lee & Anna,

The decals were very easy to use. Just soak in water and apply...that's it!

You can get the decals on ebay! The assortment there is unbelievable!

If you've got a decal project on mind. Don't forget to share!! I've gotta see your creations!

I was commenting almost at the same time as you, Lisa. I did buy some of those decals on ebay but they didn't send any instructions on how to use them. I guess they thought that it was a 'no-brainer'! LOL Thanks for the help.

Hugs,
