This small project that took me about ten minutes turned out to be popular on Facebook, so I will share it in a more permanent form.

I have saved these chocolate boxes for a while, and I have already shown how I made door pediments from them. I have also made plates from biscuit boxes.


But this time I simply cut tiny pots and pans from the box: they were clearly visible.

I am very pleased with the result.


I first thought I would paint them either metalic or copper, but actually they look nice as they are, for a retro kitchen.


  1. How did you manage to get such a smooth edge? I seem to always end up with squarish bits which have to be smoothed with sandpaper and even then don't end up looking as good as yours do.
