Painting shoe box lids

Perhaps you are thinking, “what?” But then again maybe you are totally cool with it because you’ve already seen the likes of this project on Pinterest. That’s where I found this.

Having a couple box lids myself, my sister brought a few more over and we started painting!

Be prepared to give the lid a couple coats depending on your color of paint. Also, don’t be afraid to put it on thick. Then it won’t be as streaky. The red ones aren’t quite finished yet but here is what happened with the purple ones.

My sister used a pattern from the fabulous Jones Design Company.

TraceAnd trace some more. As many as you want, really.Looking good!

Then paint in the lines using a thin brush. She did at least 2 coats.

The finished look! I love the contrasting purples!
