I have been busy reorganizing everything in my office/craft room after the holidays. January is always the perfect time to get everything back in order and ready for the new year. Of course mid stream of organizing I have to make some cosmetic changes. For instance these wood storage boxes needed a major change. I had some adhesive fabric I have been longing to use and it would be perfect for this project. I also decide to repurpose a empty candy can I had from Christmas.
The adhesive fabrics made a quick and simple change to this can. First, I applied a shipping label to the can so I would start with a white base and then added my adhesive fabric. I masked off the can and then applied some crackle effect and antiqued. I wanted it to have a old worn feel.
On the wood boxes I used a Ralph Lauren Faux Technique Glaze I had left over from another project. After I applied and let dry I roughed up the corners and little with some sand paper. Then I added my adhesive fabric. I used a black Sharpie marker to changed the color of the hardware on the boxes. Then sealed everything with a thin coat of Mod Podge.
