Raise you hand if you are an IKEA fan…. me me me!! I love IKEA!

This is the SKOGSTA box with handle and I believe it is under $10 which makes it a great buy and such a fun project to makeover! Putting the box together was also a breeze, luckily! After the box is assembled  use some painters tape to mark off where you want to add some paint.  The wood on this box is really quite nice as is, but the added color really makes it pop.

You can paint it with whatever paint you have on hand.  I opted for spray paint because I wanted the durability of spray paint.  I had some of this light blue paint left over from another project and it seems to fit perfectly with the brown tones in the box.

Remember when using spray paint to spray on thin even coats…it can be tempting to spray one thick coat so you can get it painted fast, but thin and light will yield much better results!

The possibilities are almost endless on what you could use this box for.  We recently took it with us on a picnic and it was really fun.
