DIY Gold Tissue Box

DIY Gold Tissue Box:  A simple DIY project –  an old tissue box gets a face lift and turns into a trendy gold bathroom accent.

Since we moved, my head is swimming with DIY ideas, but some times it’s overwhelming how much I want to do.  You see, I’m an impatient person……I want things to happen fast.  Large project intimidates me, so I thought I’d start small.

I love the new trend of gold accessories, so I thought I’d give a few old accessories a quick face lift.  I had everything I needed right at home, and clean up was a snap.

Do you have some of these grapevine balls laying around?  If not, you can find them in most craft stores.  

I laid out a few Bounty paper towels to paint on, grab some gold paint and a sponge brush and got to work.

I love how they look fresh and trendy again.  I may have to pick up a few more to paint and put in a bowl.

Next, I grabbed an old tissue box, along with the gold paint, white paint, sponge brushes, painters tape, sand paper, clear acrylic sealer and Bounty Paper towels.

One I sanded down the old tissue box real good, then used a dry paper towel to dust off all the sanding.

Two I used a damp Bounty Paper Towel to wipe down the entire tissue box to make sure it was dust free.

I waited about 10 minutes to start painting, to make sure the box was dry.

Three I painted the tissue box with a few coats of white acrylic paint, letting it dry between coats.  I only painted 3/4 the way down on the sides.  Four After the last coat of white was dry, I used painters tape and marked where I wanted to paint the gold on the bottom third of the tissue box. – and gave it a few good coats of gold paint.   Five I removed the tape while the gold was still wet, then used my round sponge brush to make gold circles on the top and sides.

Six  I took it out side to give it a nice coat of acrylic sealer.
