Wooden hipster boxes

So, we had a bunch of wooden boxes, parallelograms, in various sizes. But they were so clean cut, so I decided to make them a little more “hipster” so they would be good instagram material. Ha!


So, I turned them somehow vintage with the use of various tools and products.

First I sanded them so the old varnish would get off and then used a glaze with a touch of black.


Then, I beat the Sh***t out of them! I mean really! I took a little adz and started hitting them on various spots so they would make marks. Also, using a screw that I pushed on various spots I made these “I am a worn out, troubled life wooden box” marks. Then I spent like an hour playing tetris, trying to decide the best way to put them on the wall, and finally decided on the following. That’s it!
