Step 1

Cover the two-thirds of the box and lid that you don’t want to paint pink with painter’s tape. Spray-paint the remaining third pink. Remove the tape and the lid while the paint is still wet. Let dry.

Step 2

Replace the lid. Cover the left and right thirds of the box and lid with delicate-surface painter’s tape. Spray-paint the middle section of the box and lid copper. Remove the tape and the lid while the paint is still wet. Let dry. Replace the lid.
