Since we finally finished our bonus attic room above our garage this past Spring, I have been searching for the perfect decor for our home office. Not only did I want the decor to be cute and stylish, but I also wanted to have functional office space with lots of storage. We built in some bookshelves in the room and I am loving at the addition of photo boxes to help with storage and reduce clutter. Thanks to FolkArt Stencils & Paints I was able to transform some of my bland white photo boxes into stylish accent pieces.
Here are the supplies I used:
- photo box
- FolkArt painting stencil
- metallic paint
- stencil adhesive
Find FolkArt® stencils, paint and more at Michaels
First off I tested out where I wanted my stencil to go before I added the adhesive.
After finding where I wanted to place the stencil I turned it over and applied the stencil adhesive to the back of the stencil. This stuff was great and kept the stencil in place the whole time I was painting.
When you’ve got the adhesive ready you can place your stencil on the photo box and start painting.
I peeled off the stencil while it was still wet, wiped it down a little, and repositioned it on another area of the photo box for more stenciling. Once your done stenciling, let your paint dry and you will have a custom DIY Stenciled Photo Box as the perfect accent piece.
Here are a few more other details that brought the bookshelf together:
and I love this typography!
I cannot wait to show you my full office reveal, we just ordered our custom desk and are assembling it as we speak!
