LazyDIY: Upcycled Painted Storage Box

Who doesn’t have a random storage box sittin’ around that needs a little re-fresh?!


Time: about 45 minutes:


  1. storage bin
  2. a cool stencil (I got this one on
  3. flat stamp-brush
  4. acrylic paint
  5. spray adhesive
  6. Optional: spray acrylic gloss sealer

I feel like I don’t need to write the instructions for this one… but I will:

Paint your box one flat color- might take 2-3 coats.

Spray one side of the stencil with a tiny bit of spray adhesive so you can stamp-paint it easier.

Hold the stencil down and paint! I suppose a regular paintbrush would work but a flat stamp-brush is so much more precise.

Optional: when it’s all dry, spray a coat of a gloss acrylic sealer to give it a glossy finish.

e voila!
