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:
