I got my hands on some wooden cheese boxes from a somewhat local cheese shop for like $3 a piece!


I immediately had this project in mind when I saw it! My sister-in-law likes scrap-booking and taking photos and you can never have enough good storage for your supplies, so I created this ouija board/box! It was sort of a pain to burn all the lettering, but totally worth it! I ended up liking it so much, I may have a hard time giving it to her lol!

So, after stenciling and burning the letters, numbers, etc., I took a torch and burned around the edges of the top. I then applied some polyurethane clear coat finish. For the bottom part, I blended some brown and bright blue acrylic paints to give sort of an antique patina to it. I then clear-coated that as well.



For the inside, I just left bare with a bit of upholstery material to the bottom. With the humidity we get here in Michigan, I didn't want anything that could be sticky inside since she will most likely have photos and papers stored in there.



I'm sure if I had some hardware or other bits to add to it, it would look even better, but I was on a budget and using what I had.

In the end, I think she will like it!


Thanks for looking!!!

This is wonderful! I love that you saw the cheese box and immediately thought "That should be an Ouija board." Cheesy

Wow! Thank you all so much! My sister-in-law has been in the hospital (she just got out today!) so I haven't been able to give it to her yet, but I hope this will brighten her mood!
