Neon Edged Boxes

Earlier this week I showed you how I made painted storage boxes with DIY: Painted Storage Box Tutorial as inspired by this project at Centsational Girl. As promised, here is the bright, fun version I also made using that tutorial. I got the inspiration to create this neon look from this pin on Pinterest.

Wanna make your own neon edged boxes?


Stuff you’ll need:

Wooden Jewelry Box (you can find these in your craft store)

Craft Paint (in bright and cheerful colors)

Painter’s Tape


1. Use the painter’s tape to mark off the edges of the box. We’ll skip applying a base color, because this lets the wood’s natural beauty show through.

2. All that’s left to do is to paint the edges in any color you’d like. I chose bright, neon colors as they look striking against the neutral wood background.

Not the typical adjectives associated with storage boxes, but for these neon beauties, they just seem fitting.

So which version of the boxes do you guys prefer? Do you like the luxe, classic look from the tutorial on Monday or this bright, fun neon version? I can’t decide myself, but since they are so easy to make, I don’t have to choose anyway. 🙂
