Wooden Boxes Upcycled As Christmas Decor With Paint And Old Sign Stencils


I purchased this wooden wine box at the thrift shop recently.  

At first, I thought about giving it a French makeover with a duck egg blue paint.

But changing course, I wiped on a gel stain, but it was too dark, and covered all of the wood grain.

So I brushed on a couple of coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth.

Parts of the stencil were pounced on the top, front and sides.

I waxed the box with Dixie Belle Best Dang Furniture Wax, and a lint free rag.

I also had this Lane cedar chest box from a garage sale.  I had first painted it in red, but placed it back in my junk stash when I didn't my idea didn't pan out.

I sanded off some transfers that I had placed on the top.

I then painted the box with Fusion Mineral Paint in Bayberry.  This is such a neutral green.  Perfect with neutral Christmas decor.


I selected the Old Sign Stencils Christmas Sweater stencil for this box.  This stencil could easily be used on multiple pieces of your decor!


I used Dixie Belle Paint in Drop Cloth, Putty, and Caviar on the stenciling here as well.
