Kitchen box upgrade

Do you like reading recipes in magazines but rarely cook them? Here is another use for those colourful food themed pictures: decorate your kitchen storage box with them.

Materials and tools:
  • cardboard box
  • magazine pictures
  • decoupage glue
  • scrissors, brush


There were two old boxes in my mother’s pantry, she stores home made pasta in them. Their edges were a little worn but otherwise in good condition. First I only wanted to fix the edges then I had an idea about decorating. I cut a lot of pictures from recipe magazines and arranged them on the boxes. I used a layer of decoupage glue to fix it and another layer on the top to finish the surface. (Same technique as the photo box.)

The result: two cheer- and colourful boxes in the kitchen.
