Today I will show you two ideas incredible recycling of mini crates of
fair, for you to organize and decorate the your home and even make to sell.
I'm Lilian Oliveira and welcome to the channel Sharing Art.
were fruit and had these two woods nailed to the top. I'll
reuse them on the sides of these crates.
First it is necessary to sand well, as it is a little rough wood and has several splinters.
For this reason I suggest using gloves. I trash the two boxes and then
wipe with a slightly damp cloth remove excess dust. Reserve.
Then paint the first crate
inside and out as well as the two loose woods with acrylic paint on
Cut a piece of cardboard or paper
parana of the internal size of the crate. I’m going to paste these tablets that I’ve already
had around here. If you don't have simply paint the cardboard white
and glue some decorative napkin. If using tablets, mix the grout in the
water and make this soft dough and apply over them, to fill the gaps.
I used a spatula to apply, but you can use a table knife.
After applying the grout, a few tapping on the piece to get the air and
dough fill all cracks.
When the piece that passed the grout
dry to the touch, wipe the pads with a damp cloth.
Then use the bronze-colored wax patina
irisdecent and apply lightly on the surface, as I show in the video.
When finished, clean the brush
used with solvent page and then wash with soap and water. also
apply the glossy acrylic varnish on all the wood and over the napkin
And to give a greater charm put handles on both sides.
I will use to place my Perfumes. What would you use for?
If you already liked this idea hit the like and share the video with your friends. If it is
new here, subscribe to the channel and me follow on other social networks.
For the next idea you will need a mini box already sanded. Paint all the wood
with the white pva paint.
While dry use an egg tray
Styrofoam or cardboard to fit perfectly inside the crate.
Pass the primer on both sides and when drying, paint with a coat of
white paint if you are going to use a more clear, or two coats of paint
bali blue acrylic like i do in the video.
I chose to paint the part blue only
from the top where the eggs will be. In the bottom left in white.
I will use the drawing stencil Portuguese 1 code 1540 from acrilex and one
pre-hydrated pitua number 8 brush. Put very little bali blue paint and
remove excess ink before to paint. Position the stencil on the sides
of the box and paint as I show in the video.
I don't know about you, but I thought this was beautiful Portuguese print. I decided to do the
prints on the two largest sides also inside, but it’s up to you
criterion to do or not. Also stamp the two separate woods
When drying, use acrylic varnish bright on the wood part and on the door
Then just fit the Styrofoam inside of the crate and nail these two
loose woods. In this piece I chose to leave the woods close together, but if
you prefer, you can leave a space between them. Tell me which of the two ideas
you liked it best, the perfume tray or egg holder? That last piece made me
reflect on a popular saying known which says: "never put all your eggs in the
same basket "and it is applied to the world investments. It means that it is not
wise to leave all your money applied in one place, when talking
forming a portfolio. The idea is diversify to reduce risks,
how to put a percentage of fixed income investments, another in
shares, another in shares of funds, real estate and etc. But, have you ever thought of that saying
applied to your life? Mainly in this difficult time that we are
living with covid 19 is going to be necessary to reinvent yourself, to have
open to new opportunities. You can think that there is only one solution for a
problem or that only has one way to make money. But the truth is that
there are hundreds of alternatives for the same question. Take courage and
try the new one! May God bless you and grant you much wisdom and strength to
keep fighting. Remember: God is in control your life! A hug and even the
next video. Goodbye
