A Small Organizing Project

I found a small crate like box on clearance at Walmart. I had the silver paint and paintbrush, but, they were originally very inexpensive also. I had been wanting a container for our remote controls in the living room and this was the perfect size! It's amazing what a little paint can do!
I was so excited to get started on this project I forgot to take before pictures. But, you can see in the next picture that paint was the only option for this faux wood.
A picture of the bottom of the crate. It all looked like this. Some kind of manufactured wood I guess, but, the perfect size for my project.
After two quick coats of paint. Drying took longer than the painting.
Here is the finished project.
We have room for all three remotes, and a small tablet. I could probably fit more in here, but, it's perfect for what we use it for!
We started using this as soon as the paint dried, and haven't lost a remote since!
