My First Mod Podge
Awhile back, I snagged a sturdy Lysol box from Costco. I needed a place for magazines that wasn't where the dog could get them (because she would eat anything.) So I put this very unattractive box in my studio and put magazines in it.
And it sat like that for 2 months. Functional, but ugly.
So today I decided to cover it with pretty fabric I had in my stash. Here's how I did it.
First I spray painted box so the lettering wouldn't show through the fabric.
I laid out fabric and wrapped it around the box, using binder clips and clothespins to hold it in place while I pondered how in the world to do this.
A few short measurements and daring cuts into the fabric and I had my plan. One side at a time, I Mod Podged the fabric to the box, using a lint roller to smooth out any wrinkles.
Otis was a big help holding down the fabric. (Yes, I know he's huge!)
Batah bing batah boom – I have a pretty box. It's not perfect and the pattern of the fabric is very forgiving. But now my free functional box is all glammed up.
Hmmm.... What should I Mod Podge next?!
