DIY Chevron Shoebox

DIY Monday has arrived! Since it is the day most of us dread most, I want to share a project that will make you smile and maybe give you a reason to like Monday just a tad. This beautiful piece of artwork you see is made out of a shoebox. Yes, a lid from a shoebox. I knew keeping all of my shoe-boxes would come in handy one of these days! This craft is simple, fun, easy and cheap. All I did was print out a chevron pattern on card-stock, apply painters tape on the lid of the box, and spray paint my two colors of choice onto the lid of the box.

The end result is fabulous! I love how it adds to the decor of the home and modernizes it. I hung the lid in a corner of the kitchen that needed an extra boost! I want to make more and incorporate different colors. The fun to this project is endless!

Print out the chevron pattern.
Cover the shoe box in a layer of your choice of spray paint.
Once the box is dry, place the pattern over the boxes and use a quilting marker to trace the design on the box.
Use painters tape to mark the design.
Spray paint to make the design.
Once dried, remove the tape, and touch up, if needed.
Proudly hang on your wall, choosing what way to display. Here it is hanging vertical.
Make one or five! Have fun with this and try incorporating different colors!
