REVAMP: acrylic storage box

DIY jewel handled acrylic box

Do you ever see something and think, 'it's almost fabulous'?  Well, that's how I started crafting.  I wanted to make small changes to standard things to make them amazing & unique.  This $3.00 storage box was one of this things.  I loved the 'gem' shaped lid, the clear acrylic, the smoky acrylic top.  However, it wasn't fabulous yet.  I knew it needed a tweak, so I brought it home to mull it over.  Then it hit me- a jeweled handle for the lid.  The handle plays off the existing things I love about the box while making it feel more finished and stylish.  This is an easy project for even the most craft-phobic among us.

HOW TO

(it's not even worth numbering them because it's so easy)

Use the bolt cutters to remove the screw part of the knob.  Use a decent sized dollop of glue to adhere the knob to the top center of the box. Let that dry. 

TA-DA

That's it... seriously.
