Wine Boxes Turned Toy Cubbies

7 Materials
2 Days

Step 1: I had placed them together to start with, to decide how I wanted to assemble them and placed x's where it wasn't necessary to paint. Pretty much, just to save on paint.

Step 2: On the outside I painted with magnetic paint and on the inside I painted a blue.

I cannot tell you the shade of blue for I mixed this blue with paints I had found in the garage of my home before this one. :)

Step 3: Decoupage.

I didn't bother with painting the back inside the boxes either, because this is where I planned to decoupage with pictures from car magazines.

Also, I did not use decoupage glue. You can mix one part water and one part glue for this.

Step 4: Assemble. Using wood glue and various random "L" brackets I had collected over time, we put the boxes together.

I often let the kids in on what I am doing.

As a small decorative addition, I had glued magnets to an old ring and an old picture their father had taken in photography class in high school.

Then added a few of his toys...
