Hello Everyone,

I made this a few years ago for my boyfriend's birthday.  He's a DJ and I thought he needed something nice to put his records in.  I had the box made to my specifications and then painted two sides black and the other two sides decoupaged black and white stuff- some from magazines, some pictures of us.  After, I put several coats of a gloss on top.  Like I said, I made it a few years ago, so if you can see dust, don't mind it!  So here it is:

Side, with handle (a kitchen drawer handle):

Other angles:


And my favorite part (and his too) is the "Cyber Love- It Works".  We met online, and we've been together for four years!

He really liked it!  He mostly plays house, breaks, and electro, but he has a kick ass collection of old school and rare hip hop, and he keeps all those ones in this box.


I'm pretty proud of it, it was my first (and only actually) decoupage project.  Comments/Criticism/Questions welcome!

Basically, all you do is pick your pictures and cut them out (of paper or magazine material, I'm not sure that photo paper would work).  Go get yourself a tub of Modge Podge or similar product, and a sponge tip brush.  Place the pictures how you want them, and "paint" the Modge Podge over it.  Modge Podge is like a mix between a glue and a gloss, cuz it dries shiny.  Make sure the picture is flat against the surface (ie no ripples or air bubbles).  I'm sure there's tonnes of decoupage tutorials on here, and I may not have the right technique, but that's how I did this.
