IKEA Hack - Rose Gold Boxes

Thanks to DecoArt for sponsoring this project and sharing it with their readers. This project idea and the tutorial are both 100% my own.

Back in January, I shared a tutorial on how to upcycle a set of stacking boxes into pretty rose gold boxes:

Those boxes (above) were on the small to medium size — left over from one of those Christmas gift packages of nuts and candy towers we received.

Once I gave those small boxes a makeover, it was time to go big.

It was time to see what IKEA storage boxes and bins would look like with a metallic rose gold update.

Here’s the boxes I purchased at IKEA:

The first step to achieving rose gold bliss is to use a craft paint color that is similar in finish to rose gold. I chose to use DecoArt’s French Mauve acrylic paint.

After the paint dries, it’s time to use my go-to product for rose gold happiness: DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Rose Gold.

Since these boxes were turning out so very pretty, I decided to make a set of mixed media tags to tie onto each of the large-sized boxes. I made the stars (left) and butterfly (right) a rose gold color using the same process as I did on the boxes.
