Here is a little project that can be done in the evenings in front of the TV.
I have a TV on my work bench.
Everyone should have one.
Step 1: Getting the Ingredients Together
What do I have here?
I picked up a craft box for cheap. It was a little knocked but nothing that a bit of wood filler won't fix.
Step 2: Sanding and Painting
Simple stuff here. A paint brush and a bit of paint. Bob's your uncle.
Paint test pots are just the right size.
Step 3: Final Finish
I was given a handy hint for cleaning up the dust after sanding.
Use a piece of packing foam and rub down the surfaces.
It is a cheap option than something from the hardware shop.
Step 4: The Adventure Continues
I've got some letters to put on the top of the box
Step 5: Cleaning Up a Botched Job
I made a bit of a mess of painting the letters.
I decided to cover them with felt too.
I like felt.
Step 6: Lunch
Time to relax for a while and let the paint dry.
Step 7: Cut the Felt to Size
I wanted to line the box with felt.
Step 8: The Underside of the Lid
I glued some foam to the underside of the lid for a pincushion.
Step 9: And Here Is the Finished Sewing Box
