How to Make a Art Magazine Cardboard Holder - Part 2 of 3 - Paint the Sides

The Rustoleum Brown Spray Paint was available for this project.
Spray Paint
By Gary Boutin

Tools and Supply:
USPS First Class Box (Used)
Spray paint

My library of Art Magazine are spilling over my bookcase and a used USPS Mail will be upcycled thus saving the environment of another cardboard box. 

This post shows the four steps to spray paint the side of a Art Magazine Cardboard Holder. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the spray paint that was used to paint the cardboard boxes. Fig.2 shows the fabric has been removed.
This magazine holder had glued fabric and it would not seat itself to the box and it was removed

Step 2: Fig.3 and fig.4 shows a painted box. All side of this box was painted and placed outside to dry. Do not paint the boxes because it take two days for the paint to dry and two weeks for the order to dissipate.

Step 3: Fig.5 shows the magazine that will be held by this box. Fig.6 shows a top view of the magazines inside the painted cardboard holder.
These are the magazine that need proper storing

Step 4: Fig.7 shows the magazine placed in the holder. This project was a failure, because the box had to be placed outside to dry, and even when the dry the box had dried it still smelled of paint. Part 3 will address another box and wrapping this box.
