Here's a great DIY for ya! We all cook, right? Some of us more, some of us less. But guaranteed someone has given you a recipe and you've wrote it down. Or you've pinned a recipe on pinterest, and wrote it down because you didn't want to keep flipping your phone/ipad off and on while you made it. So because I have several of these kinds of recipes, I've always kept a little recipe box. But, honestly mine was not so pretty. Then a couple weeks ago, I was at Michael's and saw the unfinished wood recipe box and knew I could make it a little extra cute. Maybe even nice enough it didn't have to stay hidden all the time!
So I got the idea to use some lettering on it. At first I thought, maybe, just paint the word "recipes" on it, but then I found these little wood letters in a pack. A whole bunch for about $3.50 if I remember correctly, so knew I could use those for other little projects.
-- So I unscrewed the little hinges and sprayed the box white.....a couple coats.
-- Sprayed the letters gold.....a couple coats.
-- Put a clear coat of spray on everything.
-- Put the hinges back on.
-- Glued the letters on.
Done! So easy and I think really cute. A bit of a vintage throw back type vibe hey?
Don't assume those unfinished items in craft stores can't be made to look a bit more 'adult' and lovely!!
Go create something!
