Lacquer Box DIY

Remember back in March and April when everyone was decluttering in a way that would make Marie Kondo proud?  I didn’t go very hardcore but I did find a half stained wood box in the one tote I went through.  Nearly everything is back in that tote but I was able to give the wood box new life!  And now I have a pretty lacquer box DIY sitting on our nautical shelves in our guest bedroom.
