Girls are you like me and have tons of Birchbox draws lying around and you don’t know what to do with them? Then why not get crafty & creative and turn them into beautiful little storage drawers to keep your bits & bobs inside. I was feeling creative yesterday so I gathered a few of my Birchbox draws and made this gorgeous little stacked drawer box:
What You Will Need:
If you want to create this look you will need some white paint, a small paintbrush, some wooden hearts, a ‘love’ sign, some diamante flowers, a glue gun and glue.
How I Made It:
I painted each draw with a white matte paint and waited for them to dry and gave them another coat. Once they were dry I got out my glue gun and put the glue over the bottom of each box and glued them all together.
I then glued some gorgeous, flower diamantes which have pearls in the centre of the flower to each draw just underneath the finger holes. I did add floral buttons before the diamantes but I changed my mind when I found the diamantes. I then painted some gorgeous wooden hearts which I got here from Amazon and glued them down onto both corners of the box. I also had this gorgeous little glittery ‘love’ sign which I got from Home Bargains for 29p and I glued that on top of the box too just behind the wooden hearts.
This stacked drawer box was super easy to make and although my Birchbox box designs were pretty enough as they were – they just didn’t match in with my bedroom decor so I wanted them to ‘go’ with my colour scheme which is just a simple black and white. The drawer box is now sitting on my dressing room table, looking amazing and gorgeous. You wouldn’t even guess the draws were made from cardboard – they look like wooden to me.
I had so much fun making this and it has made my life so much easier by storing my fave beauty products inside the draws, so I now know where everything is. I will definitely be up-cycling my other boxes as they arrive!
