ReUse and Recycling a box into a Pencil Caddy

Hey Guys!! Its been a minute since I have done a blog post but I am determined to do one or two a week starting….. NOW!  I have been upcycling-recycling and everything in between lately and this project is one that came out of necessity.

I have more pens. paint brushes, pencils etc… than one person should ever need and they are all over my art room. As I was cleaning up my art room I found a box that was screaming at me to reuse it and thats what I did!  

First I reinforced it with duct tape and folded the tops down to make sure it could hold my massive collection.

 

Then I used the DELICIOUS Folk Art Coastal Texture Paint in High Tide. It is a textured paint and I LOVE it! One coat and it went on glossy duct tape easily! I am going to add some dividers for some “organization”.

I am so happy with how it came out I will be doing another one for more of my supplies.
