Spray Painted Storage Cube Boxes

To create these Spray Painted Storage Cube Boxes, I used the Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Metallic Spray Paint. The Storage Boxes were Closetmaid Fabric Boxes. Click on the images to purchase at Amazon.com

So it turns out that cube storage boxes are expensive. I wanted something really nice for my living room area but was having a hard time finding anything within my price range. I hate that. This is usually how most of my projects start. I started searching online for better priced storage boxes but couldn't really find anything that worked for under $25.00 each.
Ugh....so I found another solution.
I bought the very basic Closetmaid storage boxes found at target or walmart. They were $5.99. I also bought a can of spray paint. I like Rustoleum best for metallic paint. I just like the even spray and it works every time (this is not a sponsored post or brand of mine, I just really like them).
I did not overthink painting these and they are not completely perfec. Nothing I do is. I painted the canvas storage boxes silver with a nice even coat and did not paint the interior or the bottom.The trick to painting anything is that less is more and keep your hand or arm moving while your can of paint is spraying so you can lay down an even coat and it won't be splotchy. Also, they take a little longer to dry than other spray paint projects. Paint and fabric always take longer so prepare for a few good hours of drying. I am so happy with how they look and will be posting pictures of my Star Living Room/Family Room Makeover soon to see.
