[Kawaii PH x Daiso Japan] Kawaii-fy DIY Project: Mini-Study Station

Hello! Time for another  Kawaii PH x Daiso Japan Kawaii-fy DIY Project! Exams coming up? Want to catch up on some reading? :) Here’s a cute little project that we hope will get you though your boring studying woes: a kawaii mini-study station!

Storage: check! Memos: check! Light, check! ♥


  • Daiso wooden mini-cabinet (sold per part)
  • Daiso framed tin panel
  • Daiso lace tape
  • Daiso border sticker
  • Daiso spot and book light
  • Daiso colorful magnet bullets
  • Scissors, double sided tape, hot glue gun
  • Photos, memos, lists, notes


 1. Prepare the wooden cabinet by removing packaging stickers carefully.

2. Next, we’ll decorate the cabinet part-by-part using the border sticker tape and lace tape.

We’ll decorate the drawers first. Remove them from the cabinet so we can decorate them easily.

Start sticking the border sticker tape from the back of the drawer. Work your way around the drawer carefully.

Next, we’ll decorate the cabinet body itself.

Start sticking the border sticker tape on the upper left edge, the work your way around to the upper right edge. Make sure that the tape stays inside the edge, to prevent it from getting removed when you open and close the drawers.

Next, we’ll use the lace tape to decorate the lower part of the cabinet.

Start from the back, then tape around the cabinet’s base.

You may add more decorations at this point as you want. We added some embroidered flowers that we made ourselves! 🌼

3. Next, take out the framed tin panel. We found this product very interesting because you can stick photos on it using magnet! ♥

Measure 1.5 inch at the back of the cabinet.

Mark the measurement with a line using a pencil.

After marking, you may now decorate the frame. We used lace tape and more embroidered flowers. :)

4. Using the hot glue gun very carefully, put an ample amount of hot glue at the back of the cabinet, just above the pencil mark.

Before the glue dries/cools, stick the lower wooden part of the frame on the glue, then apply pressure to make sure it sticks well. Press on it firmly using your thumbs. Don’t worry if some of the glue spills out, it’s a sign that you’re pressing firmly enough!

5. Looking great! :) Now, take out the Spot and Book Light. We love this product, it’s so cute! ><

Put a strip of heavy duty double sided tape on the bottom of the lamp. Place it on the top of the cabinet then press firmly on the base of the lamp so it sticks well.

Switch the lamp on by pressing the button on the back of its head to check the light. It’s a cute little light enough for reading and writing! :)

6. Now, take the colorful magnets and stick some notes and small photos on the tin frame!

And we’re done! Perfect for a small room with a small study desk!

Put some of your favorite things on and around to to keep you inspired. ♥
