DIY- Restoration Hardware Inspired Box

Hello Everyone!

This post contains affiliate links.

Today I have another Restoration Hardware Inspired project!

As many of you know, I love RH, they have amazing home decor items! I did a chandelier inspired project a few years ago, you can find that here: Chandelier


I found these beautiful metallic boxes on the RH website. I love the wood and the beautiful gem on top. But the price is a little out of my reach right now.

But it is easy to make one! My is not exactly the same… but that is all part of the fun in doing an inspired project.


  • Box. I used a wooden cigar box, but any wooden box will do. The cardboard cigar box probably won’t work as well, but if that is all you have then just paint the printing with white paint first then it should work ok.
  • Metallic paint. I used the Folk Art paint I had in my stash, but use what you have
  • Gem. I had this giant plastic gem that worked great. Of course I got my box and gem from Who Gives A Scrap, lol.
  • Glue. Use a glue that will work on wood and plastic, I used Loctite glue.


Pick your color and paint 2 coats on the box. I used a gold and a copper paint that looked really cool. If you want to make it look more like the RH box you can sand it first and use a wood filler it you want to cover up the writing.  I wanted the rustic finish with the metallic and gems, a little contrast that I like.

Once the outside and inside are completely dry then glue your gem on with your glue. I liked the gem on the top, but you can place it anywhere that looks good.

Once the glue has dried overnight you can add a spray sealer if you want. I wanted to protect the paint so I did add a gloss spray sealer.

And there you have it, a RH inspired box. So very cute and it is great to give as a gift, or put the gift inside and use it as the wrapping.

TBT Restoration Hardware Chandelier DIY

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to take a few minutes today to do a TBT. I made this chandelier about 4 years ago and I still love it! Here is the original blog post: Restoration Hardware Chandelier

The DIY took me a while to complete, but it still is one of my favorite projects! I hope you all enjoy the walk down memory lane.

I have a lot of new readers so I wanted to share this DIY with everyone.

When I saw this RH chandelier I fell in love! I mean it is a perfect blend of sparkle and fancy with rustic, industrial elements. But I did not fall in love with the cost.


The Full instructions are in the original post, but here are the abbreviated instructions

I found this old light fixture and added some hoops that I found at the craft store.

After adding the hoops I spray painted everything with Rusteloem Oil Rubbed Bronze (my favorite spray paint)
