Spray Paint the Lid

The first step in creating your personalised wooden gift box is to paint the lid. Take your wooden box and  spray paint it in matte spray paint in your desired colour. For this project, we've opted for a stunning matte yellow. Start by ensuring your wooden box is clean and free of any dust. Shake the spray paint can well and hold it approximately 15-20cm away from the lid. Then spray a light and even coat over the lid's surface. Allow it to dry for the recommended time on the paint can. If needed, apply a second coat for a more vibrant finish. Feel free to experiment with different shades to suit your personal style!

Contrasting Spray Paint

Now, let's add some contrasting colours to the outside part of your wooden gift box. To achieve this, you'll use two more spray paint colors, in our case, a striking turquoise and bold black. First, decide how you want to divide the box with colours. You can go for a classic half-and-half look or let your creativity flow. Use tape to cover the area where you don't want the turquoise paint to reach. Spray the exposed half with your chosen turquoise spray paint. Once it dries, remove the tape carefully. When finished tape off the turquoise side to protect it and spray paint the remaining half in a striking black.
