Lacquered boxes are one of my favorite objects to collect and use as decor around the house. I use them to store trinkets and baubles, organize my desk and vanity, as decor on tables, and once in a while as gift boxes for home baked goodies. Lately I've been obsessed with vintage glam accessories like the ones above. Kelly Wearstler's are one-of-a-kind and retail up to the thousands per piece. I've been tempted to splurge on the one by RabLabs (here)- but discovered a fun, easy, and free DIY version using items I already own.
I took an old bracelet that was falling apart, one of my lacquered boxes from the Container Store (purchase it here), spray painted the cover, and glued a few stones from the bracelet on top. Voila! Pretty chic new box that didn't cost me a penny! You can re-create this using any hard box or container you already have and any beads/stones.
