Upcycled Craft Containers

If you are a crafter like I am you are always looking for creative ways to store your supplies.
I found some really neat wood containers at I thrift store that needed a make over!

What you will need:
A container
Spray Paint - I used the zinsser primer
Paint for a hightlight
Sand Paper

First make sure your container is clean and then spray a few coats of primer and/or paint.

Next, after it has dried, sand it to give it give it an antiqued look.

I wanted to give it a bit more dimension, so I used to grey paint on the know and on the design.

I don't have a picture, but I decided to sand it a bit more after I the grey paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
