Don’t Buy It, DIY It: Lacquer Box Look-Alikes

Don’t Buy It, DIY It: Lacquer Box Look-Alikes

February 9, 2016

We lo-o-o-ve lacquer — just check out our recent love letter to lacquered walls, for instance — but make no mistake, the glossy stuff doesn’t come cheap. The shiny, covetable boxes that you dreamily picture on your bedside table, dressing up your living room, or adorning your bathroom generally cost upwards of $60 a pop, size depending. Which makes them ripe for some serious DIY’ing.

We’ve rounded up six crafty bloggers’ takes on how to make your own shiny lacquer boxes, none of which will run you more than $20 to $30 for the basic supplies. 

So bring on the gloss!
