Create clever storage for a child’s room with LEGOS® and Americana Acrylics.


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • 3/4" flat brush
    • hot glue gun and glue sticks
    • 1-1/4" sponge pouncer
    • LEGOS®
    • cigar box



    Allow to dry between painting steps.

    1. Use a 3/4” flat brush to basecoat the top and bottom of the cigar box, Grey Sky; and the sides, Citron Green, Cadmium Yellow, Bright Orange, and Baby Blue. Let dry completely.
    2. Use a 1/4” pouncer to add dots to make sides look like LEGOS®: on Citron Green side, add Foliage Green dots; on Bright Orange side, Canyon Orange dots; on Cadmium Yellow side, Saffron Yellow dots; and on Baby Blue side, Ocean Blue dots.
    3. Use hot glue to attach LEGOS® on box lid in the shape of child’s first initial.
