Woodburning boxes (organizers)
Organizing items can cost a small fortune. In fact, buying organizers for shelves and closets can cost up to several hundreds of dollars. Yet, these items hold no decorative or artistic value. If you are one of those people that don’t like plastic organizers, this article is for you. This article is also for all of those who want to know how to make beautiful, unique organizers that actually hold value without costing a fortune. For this project, you’ll need to provide a few wooden boxes in size that fits your surface (shelve or closet).
Making woodburnt organizing, storage boxes can be a great way of restoring old wooden boxes. Wood is a valuable material, but a lot of it goes to waste because it ages, stains and tarnishes. If you are a passionate woodburner, you can turn any old, wooden box into a chic organizing storage box. If you prefer new boxes, you can get them at hobby stores or buy raw material to build them on your own. Once you measure the dimensions you want for your storage box, you simply need to cut and glue pieces together and create handle-holes (if you wish).
Once you’ve got your boxes, you can decorate them with torching, shading, patterns or images. You can add inspiring quotes since you will be looking at them every time you reach into your closet before you get dressed. Another option is chests, which are a very chic way to store your clothes. If you enjoy that retro feeling when you are opening a chest to pick which of your favorite shoes, jewelry or dress you will wear today, chests are for you. If you wish a really elegant look, then choose clean and symmetric patterns to frame the edges with. You can use a matching design on all of your boxes, or you can mix and match different design for a more personalized look.
If you’re a fan shabby chic decor, you might encounter challenges when you are choosing your organizers. Most organizing items are made of plastic, and that might not go well with your interior decor style. This is a great option for you to avoid those nasty plastic organizers and bins and still keep your closet organized and tidy. You can implement elements of shabby chic into your woodburning style by using dominantly floral patterns. if you decide to do some gentle, elegant flowers and leaves in the middle of every side of the box and at its corners, you will soon have a perfectly organized closet that „goes” with your retro, shabby chic decor style.
Rustic chic influence
The rustic interior style is famous for its simplicity and „earthly”-ness. Items that belong in the category of rustic decor are usually very little processed, and showing signs of damage or aging. This is the part of the charm of ‘rustic chic’, and, for fans of woodburning, this simply means adding beauty to an aged piece of wood. If you own any storage boxes that are old, scratched or damaged, you can create a style out of that with some well-thought torching, shading, and lining.
