Instructions

  1. Basecoat the lid and center of the toy box Wicker White. Basecoat the sides of the toy box Coastal Blue. Paint the edges Licorice.
  2. Unscrew the lid of the toy box and lay it down on the rocket ship fabric and trace. Cut out traced pattern.
  3. Measure the front and back panel of the toy box and cut two pieces from the robot fabric using the measurements.
  4. Working one panel/side at a time, apply a coat of Mod Podge to a toy box. Lay the fabric over the box and smooth out wrinkles and air bubbles. Allow to dry. Repeat the same process for other panel and lid.
  5. Using Wicker White, paint dots along the edge of the Licorice edge as shown. On the side panels paint some off centered stripes with Calico Red and Licorice.
  6. Cut out two rocket ships from the robot fabric. Cut as close to the image as possible. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of the cut fabric piece and adhere to the sides of the toy box.
  7. Trim excess fabric from the lid and front/back panels if needed.
