How-to:
  1. Clean your wooden box by wiping it with a damp cloth mixed with a homemade vinegar mixture.

  3. Use a 1/2″ drill bit (recommended size) to make two holes in the back of the wooden box.

  5. Paint your wooden box with your chosen color and let dry.
  6. Place it in your designated area. You may choose to add a couple of decor pieces in the area for a more stylish space.
