over the past few months some glossyboxes have been collected and i´ve been using them as a storage for jewellry and nailpolish. nevertheless, i always wanted to recreate something else out of the covers but never knew what i wanted to do. in the meantime i´ve been unsuccessfully looking for a nice, rectangular tray to hold my candles and display my favorite small things! so when vicky came up with this idea to spray paint her dino last week, i finally knew what the solution was. she was kind enough to lend me her gold spray and i started gilding my boxes. here is the outcome of what i did! do you like the golden look as well?
here is what i was working with:
a blue and gold box in the entryway to hold my keys and loose money:

this is the tray i´m most satisfied with:

for the vanity station next to my bed i wanted to do something more creative to hold little things like earrings, lipbalm or earplugs (yes, i really need them to sleep) in place. so i started looking around my apartment for things that would separate each section and found chinese chopsticks and pink straws.
i simply stuck the chopsticks (the length is perfect) into the box and sprayed them gold as well. after that, i glued the smaller pieces of straw onto the bottom and taaadaaa – pink and gold organization tray was finished:

and a little instagram pic of how i use the golden brush pot in my bathroom:

    Klasse Idee und das Resultat macht richtig was her! Sieht hammer aus! Besonders der ‘Deckel’ in dem die Kerzen stehen. 🙂
    Lg, Andrea
    Wonderful and Marvelous

  • Karolina

    tolle idee, gold gefällt mir 🙂

  • Fabelimo

    Das ist mal wirklich gute Idee, werde ich sicherlich nachmachen. Sag mal, geht die Farbe nicht ab inzwischen oder ist sie bombenfest?

    • Katharina

      also, die farbe hält BOMBENFEST aber es hat sicher (kein scherz) 3 wochen gedauert, bis sie ganz durchgetrocknet ist! hab die boxen auf meinen glastisch gestellt, aber erst nach einem tag ca., dann hatte ich so goldene spuren drauf! geht natürlich von glas leicht wieder runter, aber auf jeden fall ist vorsicht angebracht 🙂
