This houndstooth storage box used to be an ugly, beat up shoe box that I was about to throw away. Seconds before I was about to break the box down, it occurred to me that I could use if for my nail polish, as my collection was outgrowing a smaller box they were stored in. I love projects like this. Projects that cost little to no money (because I had all of the elements in my home), that are functional and pretty! If you've never used Mod Podge before then this is the beginning of a long and healthy relationship. I go a little bit crazy with it and I hope you do too! I've covered many decor pieces with Mod & fabric, but they always come out wonderful. Be advised: You will see many more posts with Mod Podge as the star.
- Shoe Box
- Mod Podge
- Small Foam Brush
- Coat the Box with Mod Podge, evenly.
- Cover with fabric. **Stretch it to get wrinkles out.
- Fold the fabric when necessary (on corners and such) and cut off the excess.
- Paint another layer on top of the fabric to harden it and make it more durable.
- Let it dry & voila!
