Step 1: Sand the Box

Sand the entire box, making sure to create a smooth, clean surface before you paint. 

Step 2: Paint the Exterior

Paint the entire exterior of the box white. Let dry for about 15-20 minutes. 

Step 3: Paint the Interior

While the exterior is drying, paint the interior of the box turquoise, but leave the rim unpainted for now.

Step 4: Paint the Rim

Paint the inside rim gold and let the whole interior dry for another 15-20 minutes. 

Step 5: Glue the Stone

Glue the stone to the top of the box. The glue should be applied to a relatively flat surface on the gold side of the stone. 

Tip 1: Brush Off Dust

Brush off any dust from the box before you start to paint so that the paint doesn’t streak.

Tip 2: Fix the Stone

Face the inside of the stone towards the front of the box for the best look.
