Personalizing a Watercolor Box

Watercolors are commonly stored in a boring looking black metall box bought in the store…But does it need to be so… black? …so boring? …so store bought looking? I say: nay! Let’s personalize it and make it more fun! When I got the idea to personalize my new, bigger waterclor box, I decided to bring […]

DIY Spray Paint Crazy

DIY Spray Paint Crazy

I love DIY Spray Paint projects a lot, mostly because it is so much fun to personalize things with color. It’s my favorite repurposing thing to do with thrift finds! Plus it’s the quickest way to totally transform the look of something, which is always fun. These days you can find so many different hues […]

And now they’ve got the most beautiful line of paper goods, including notebooks, washi tape, wrapping paper, boxes and more. Related […]
