From the Designer: "Transform a plain white box or similar container into a work of art in just a few simple steps. Use painter's tape and metallic copper paint to create a one-of-a-kind design. The project is easy so get the kids involved. I finished painting the box in no time at all and grabbed a couple of rocks to paint too! Use the painted metallic box to show-off faux greenery, as a work desk organizer, table centerpiece, etc. I added artificial greenery to my metallic copper and white graphic design painted box and the look is designer worthy."
