Next, is storage for the furniture pillows. My husband built this box out of plywood and it's actual use was supposed to be for kindling for the fireplace.
However, I kinda scooped it up and decided it would be perfect for pillow storage. My husband had already painted it grey, but I needed to freshen it up a bit. I used my new favorite color, which does not have a name because my local Home Hardware did a color match from my fabric swatch to mix the perfect paint color for me. Anyway, I LOVE the color so you may see, in the future, that I may use this color quite a bit! Back to the box...I gave it only one coat of paint. I then made a stencil with the word "Storage".
I stenciled it on to the lid used the color Sandbar. Once dry, I gave just the lid and letters a light sanding, allowing a bit of the grey to show through.
It certainly looks better than it did and now my pillows have a safe, dry place to be stored.
Just a note...with the way our summer has been going, those pillows will be spending most of their time in storage!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
