Sometimes your DIY project needs a little something extra to give it that special touch. Our friend Molly (@thehonesthome_), who went from a total DIY beginner to experienced professional over the course of only a year, was kind enough to share her favorite tip for her decorative DIYs: trim!
Molly used trim and Loctite® Super Glue ULTRA Gel Control to create a beautiful, fluted look on a keepsake box she built for her coffee table in her newly remodeled living room. In just a few minutes, she took a plain old box to a lovely centerpiece.
Watch Molly explain her idea and her process in the video below.
To learn how Molly added a beautiful exterior to her keepsake box, follow the steps below!
What You’ll Need:
- Lumber, enough to create your finished project
- Trim, 1” wide or less
- Sandpaper and paint (optional)
2. Cut your lumber
Once cured, cut your fluted lumber just like you would for a plain board to get the pieces required to create whichever DIY you are tackling today. This is also the time to collect any other materials specific to your project. Molly is making a keepsake box so the lumber and her handy-dandy Loctite® Super Glue is all she needs!
This handy little trim hack will put those final touches on your DIY, giving an elegant exterior to everything from keepsake boxes to doors and planters. Make sure your project lasts with the help of Loctite® Super Glue ULTRA Gel Control.
