Remove all front and side plates and screws from the boxes using the screwdriver.
Fill holes with wood putty. Let Dry.
Sand entire box smooth.
Paint 2 coats Desert Turquoise with foam brush. Let Dry.
Add painter’s tape along top edge of box 1 cm down from edge for a 1 cm stripe. Press edges to seal. Paint 2 coats of Gold. Let Dry.
Apply a coat of high gloss varnish. Let Dry.
I love them! This metallic gold and turquoise blue color combination is so pretty! The gold metallic stripe is shimmery in the light and really pops with the blue paint and lacquer finish.
I placed my box set on my DIY chalky finish end table in my living room for a pop of coastal color.
