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!
