Hi all! I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend and had a happy Memorial Day with the weekend over it’s time to get back into a normal routine. Crafting and blogging! Today I am going to share How to give a wood box the farmhouse style look.
I picked up this cute little wooden box at Goodwill for $2.99, even though I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. But it was a good price, and hey it was a box. Who doesn’t love cute little boxes.
How To Give A Wood Box The Farmhouse Style Look
I decided to give the little wooden box The Rustic farmhouse style. Since I was going to use chalk paint all that I needed to do to prep the wooden Box for paint was to wipe it down with the wet soapy rag, rinse, and dry.
First, I remove the little pull knob on the top. Then I gave the little wooden box two coats of white chalk paint inside and out.
Since I was planning on keeping the little box I wanted to be able to use it some way but still have it out to be seen. So, I decided to use it for storing tea bags. With that decided I went about stenciling the word tea on the little box using black chalk paint.
Then I took it outside and sanded the edges, and lightly sanded the sides, and top to give it that distressed rustic charm that I love.
Lastly, I added the little pull knob back on, I was going to switch it out but I think it’s a perfect fit for the little wooden box what do you think?
This box was a very easy project, just some paint and stenciling. My cute little tea bag box now sits next to another one of my thrift store makeovers that I am keeping.
It is a keeper. Would you keep it?
Now you know how to give a wood box the farmhouse style look the simple easy way.
