As I’ve mentioned before with my rustic DIY shelf tutorial, I just love to craft with Darice’s unfinished wood products. They’re like a blank canvas waiting for your imagination. I combined a sweet little box with some wood spools to create some retro-liscious DIY sewing box storage for my craft room.
DIY Sewing Box Storage Supplies:
- Darice Wood Cabinet with Drawers
- Darice Wood Spools
- Mod Podge
- Scrapbook Paper
- Folk Art Chalk Paint in Plymouth Rock
- Ink Pad
- Darice Glue Gun
- Darice Get Organized Jute Twine
Step 2. Remove the knobs from the front of the drawers. I used scissors to remove some of the glue holding the knobs in place, then twisted the knobs until they came off.
Step 3. Trace the front of the drawers on the scrapbook paper and cut out the pieces. Do the same for the sides and top of the box.
Step 4. Use Mod Podge to attach the paper to the box. Paint a thin, even layer of Mod Podge onto the wood, then place the paper on top. Press down firmly to ensure that there are no air bubbles. Let it dry.
Step 5. Trim off any excess paper. Use an ink pad to “distress” the edges of the paper.
I just love my new DIY sewing box! It’s retro, vintage look blends in perfectly with my craft room. The drawers are perfect for bobbins, buttons, pins, and any other small sewing items that you want to keep organized. Have fun crafting and creating with unfinished wood!
If you’re looking for other sewing room storage ideas, these doily covered, decorative storage boxes would be great to hold fabric scraps and findings.
