My daughter, Kathy, has just recently married. Well, back in August. Anyway, she was asking me for my help with organizing and decorating here apartment. I, of course, beamed with pride that she would want my help.
One thing she said she wanted was a way to organize the flatware. Apparently, her then fiancé had just thrown all the flatware into the drawer and it took a search to find the piece needed. It’s not hard to find a flatware organizer for the drawer. They can be found at WalMart or any yard sale. They aren’t expensive.
Long story short, Kathy found one at a yard sale for a quarter, I think. It didn’t fit the drawer in her kitchen. Bummer.
So, Kathy, this is for you. Mod Podge boxes.
- Some sort of box
- Some sort of paper- wrapping paper, news paper, paper bag
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
1) They have built in holes and stuff sticks through them.
Measure the box in half. I measured mine from side to side.
Tape the opening shut. I also taped the inside for better hold.
Paint a small section with the Mod Podge. I started on the inside so my hands would get so messy.
Lay a piece of paper down and paint on top of it. Cover the bottom and the sides. Leave the pieces that need to fold over sticking up until you have covered all sides. It just makes it easier and less messy.
When you have covered the inside, paint small sections of the outside of the box and fold the pieces sticking up over the edge. Continue to cover the box with paper in small sections, making sure to paint the top of the paper as well.
My drawer looks much better, don’t you think?
