Make A Storage Hanger Box for Keys & Sunglasses

Alter a wooden shadow box into a stylish storage hanger box for keys and sunglasses. Add a large wooden spring peg to the frame to attach memo notes that you need to grab before you leave the house.

Paint the frame of the wooden box and the game pieces with the white paint. It may need more than one coating for better result.

Using a hard paint brush or a piece of cardstock, create lines using the pinecone ink and blend with soft paper towel to create a woodgrain effect on the frame of the box.

Place the wooden box on the back side of the selected paper from the paper bloc and draw around the top edge of it. Mark about 1cm to the inner side of these lines and cut. A second paper cut about 3cm x 13,3cm is needed to cover the height of the box inside.

Glue the papers in the back of the box.

Using black ink, stamp the designs and distress around the stamped image.

Cut a 50cm long piece of the piping cord and lightly distress colour it with the pinecone ink. Glue it around the inner side of the box frame.

Distress the wooden peg with the black ink and glue it on the left front side of the box’s frame. Glue the wooden game pieces on the inner bottom of the box. Place glue both on their base and on the side that is to be attached to the frame.

Cut a 20cm long piece of piping cord, lightly distress it with the pinecone ink. Make a knot on each end, glue the edges by pulling them tight on the top of the frame and secure further with the rivets.

Add a frame hook on the back of the box and it's ready to hang on a wall.
