Long time no blog, I know. I’ve been a busy bee working on many many projects, as you may have kept up with on Instagram with some sneak peeks! Well now you get the full tutorial for one of my favourite projects lately – a little black and white beauty!
I can’t even explain to you how obsessed I am with this. Who doesn’t love a little something Kate Spade Inspired? As you can see from the image above, I’m kind of obsessed with black and white… if you didn’t catch that already from my kitchen chairs and my recent table/lamp makeover! Here’s what I used to make this:
- 1 IKEA KASSETT box
- Black electrical tape
Yes, that’s it. Material count is TWO! Now let’s start by putting the box together. It’s IKEA, and I do love me some IKEA, but everything is complicated to put together. Now that you’re frustrated and ready to eat a chocolate bar, pull out your electrical tape.
Does that make sense? I also opted not to put tape on the side of the lid because the measuring would have been crazy and the size of the tape wouldn’t really work, and I really just didn’t feel like it was necessary.
Can we just look at this box again, please?
This might just be the shortest blog post I have ever written – I needed to point that out!
For you visual folks, here’s the full tutorial:
Thoughts on my little experiment? As always, I love to hear from you. I’m thinking I need to use the second box that came in the package to make another striped box, but maybe in the opposite direction? Or in a different colour? Maybe in copper? Oooooh!!!
