So I went to Joann’s with FH a couple days ago and picked up this gem, which we plan to use as a card box:
(Sorry it’s huge, Chrome isn’t letting me resize it for some reason)
Anyway, we got it at a huge discount due to a defect in it that didn’t bother us (it was originally $42 and we got it for $9), so it was too good of a deal to pass up. But the thing is, my colors are gray, blue and white, and it doesn’t really “go” with them. I was thinking about painting it, but wasn’t sure.
Any ideas how to make this steal look like it belongs? 🙂 TIA

You could paint it blue and on the inside a different color. Or the same color. You could pad the inside of it with a colored fabric, ei Satin. And so when people open it, they’re surprised.

Very cute!! definitely paint it. I would do the converse of what your linens. For example my linens were fuschia so I painted mine tangerine (those were our colors). I like PP’s idea to put some fabric/satin inside yours!
Here is a pic of mine.. totally different than yours but might give you some inspiration…

I think painting it is a great idea! Are you planning on cutting a slot or having it open for putting cards in? If opening it, I have seen people hang the word “Cards” on the back open part and it looks super cute.
