STORAGE BOXES TWEAK.

Happy Friday Folks!
Sorry about not keeping up to my "will be back on Thursday". The tweak I am sharing today is a mini one which did not need a separate post.
For the built-in book shelves I filled it up with few accessories that I shopped for in the house and I did tweak them before styling the shelves.
The two small storage boxes you see here are from Target.
I found them like these in the clearance section. Both the boxes were in good condition except the scratches on them.

On a Saturday morning, I set-up my work station in the garage.
I removed the stickers on the bottom of the boxes with Goo Gone. And gave the boxes and the lids a light sanding.
I sprayed 2 coats of primer and when it dried, sprayed 2 coats of white glossy paint giving time to dry between each coat.

I let the boxes dry overnight.
And next day, I painted the inside of the bigger box a red and the smaller one in yellow. I don't know why I did that I liked it.

Each box needed 3 coats of paint. I used the crafts acrylic paints that I already had at home. I had bought them from Michaels. One bottle was more than enough for each box.

 
The boxes were perfect for the shelves. If I ever have to move either of the box to another room, I can just paint to match it that space or room's d├ęcor.

What are your plans for the weekend?
We have guests over for dinner tonight as well tomorrow evening.
I am working on a project that I will share with you all sometime next week.

Have a great weekend you all.
