Hello again! The Spring is almost here, well actually not for everyone (sorry Australia) but for those of you who live in Northern Hemisphere – happy Springtime! So spring cleaning is pretty essential part of the Spring but why not give a new and rustic touch to your rooms with some new design elements, such as DIY boxes. If you live in Estonia or anywhere else in Northern Europe you know that tangerines are super popular fruits in Christmastime and that they are often packaged into small wooden boxes. One of these boxes is the one that we used for our DIY box project. And honestly there’s only one thing that you have to do – paint it!

We used black acrylic color that can be used for canvas metal, wood, wall etc. You can choose whatever color you like but we went with simple yet sophisticated black. It is from an Italian company called Maimeri and the color’s precise name is Carbon Black. By the way, we looked from H&M’s website that they offer wooden boxes that look a little similar to the one we made but H&M offers them from 14,99 euros while ours didn’t even cost a half of that price – wooden box itself was “free” since it is actually just packaging and acrylic color cost about 5 euros. So you can achieve an awesome look and practicality for very cheap price and by recycling. You can use this box as storage box or also for growing your own windowsill herbs. We’re sure it’ll look great!
