I was recently walking through the craft store and I spied these wood boxes. Geodes, quartz, stone are totally in right now. Anthropologie has beautiful geode hardware I’m swooning over. I also recently saw two of my favorite bloggers, The Handmade Home and I Heart Organizing, creating with these elements.
I had received the Elmer’s ProBond product as part of this sponsored post. It is meant for attaching porous and non-porous surfaces and I knew it would work perfectly for my box.
I took off the hardware and painted the entire box gold. This was the same DecoArt gold paint I used on my chalkboards. Then I plopped some of that ProBond glue on the box where I wanted my stone (which is actually jewelry) and let it dry.
We have our little desk space right in our living room. We are a close-knit family and do everything in the same room–give or take. There really is something to say for a lot of people in a smaller home and family bonding.
I’m thinking of lining the box with some fun contact paper. It will be the perfect place for storing cords/chargers and other things we are constantly reaching for, but aren’t pretty.
And I still haven’t read Gone Girl. It is officially on my summer reading list! Have you read it? Was it good?
This was such a fun and simple project–that was super affordable–I will definitely be making more!
