I love it when I pull up to a “nothing-looks-good tiny little garage sale“ and I find that one item to bring home. Large or small, it’s just fun. This time I found a step stool, I think originally from IKEA, around the $20.00 price. I paid $2.00. I knew it was a good item to find because I had just told the hubby I needed one. You know what happens as you get older? You get shorter!
I sanded it, primed it, then spray painted it white, but it still needed something. Then I gave it some flower power!
I’m no stranger to adding duct tape to wood. I’ve been a true fan of the decorative tape since I used it on my white dresser in the woman cave. It’s a simple as laying on strips of the tape down, overlapping slightly. I decided since flowers in the gardens aren’t matched up perfectly, the duct tape shouldn’t be perfectly aligned either.

Welcome back to another post in the For The Love Of series. Pinterest provides stats on the amount of times a project is pinned. My dresser decorated with duct tape continues to be added to pinner boards. This led me to think it would be fun to do a For The Love Of on tape, all kinds of tape; duct, washi, ribbon.
I found a couple of faux herb pots at Michaels on sale a few months back. I used ribbon tape to decorate the pots and they now sit on my built-in bookshelf in my family room.
To add a bit of trim to my coupon holder I added some black and white polka dot washi tape.
My most popular post ever is using duct tape to cover the drawers of a white laminate dresser. It now totally rocks in black and white check duct tape.
Black and white polka dot washi tape also added some cuteness to some blah black picture frames to make polka dot frames.
I used pink and green chevron duct tape to cover a mobile phone box. Love the colors and pattern.
Another take on recycling old boxes. This time I created a sea of maps for a work event using old maps and washi tape.
Last, but not least, cover cardboard box lids with with fun duct tape and they become decorative file trays file trays.
Do you use duct tape or washi tape for your creations? Happy Friday to you and have a great weekend!
Over the past several months I’ve been taking one drawer at a time, one room at a time, and cleaning it out. I came across an empty cell phone box from my Galaxy 3 purchase. Since I had just bought some bright spring colored chevron style Duct Tape, my little brain said hmmm.
So I grabbed a pair of scissors, turned on The Voice and mindlessly and in just a couple of minutes did this.
I love the color combo of pink, orange and green. I literally just opened the tape and started at one end of the box, stopped at the other end. Overlap your lines just a tiny bit. Use an exacta knife to trim edges for a clean cut. The plant container sitting on the box is from a ribbon tape project I did.
Do you remember my other cell phone boxes update? Check out instructions for these here.
Next time your getting ready to toss a box to the recycle, will you say hmm?
