As someone whose washi tape collection runneth over, I was THRILLED when Adrianne from All Ready Memories sent one of her washi tape boxes my way. Aside from being a genius organizing tool, it also comes in a natural wood color that is perfect for customizing!
After experimenting with wood stain on my ring box a few weeks back, I have become obsessed with painting anything + everything in sight with it. Nothing is safe from me. So, it was pretty much a no-brainer that my washi tape box would eventually be covered in a little honey-colored wood stain.
Initially I had planned on applying a few coats, but after the first layer dried, I decided to leave it as is to really allow the natural woodgrain to shine through. The secret to achieving an even coat is to let the paint soak into the wood for just a few seconds and then wipe off any excess with a rag. The other secret is to wear gloves. At all times. (Not that I’m that I’m speaking from experience or anything.)
I am such a fan of the way it turned out and I love how easily I can organize and access my ever-growing collection of tapes! Thank you, Adrianne!
