It’s no secret, I love my David Kind glasses. They are sturdy to the max.
Just last month, my tantrum-ing three year old gave me a swift kick to the face as I was buckling her into her car seat, and my glasses flew several feet into the parking lot. #threenager… My face was a bit stunned and sore, but the glasses…literally, not a scratch. They have proven to be more than mommy proof so far!
Practical reasons aside, I can’t help but also love their packaging. Even from the inital try-on set, everything is housed in beautiful, classy cork cases. The case your final pair comes is so simple, so elegant.
…And a beautiful blank slate! To a DIY-er, it makes you want to just paint it!
So, I did. 🙂 Here’s how…
Craft paint (Martha Stewart Multi-purpose paint is my fave)
Foam craft paint brush
New pencil with eraser
Sharp cutting tool (PenBlade sent me one of their retractable knives to use…they are sharp! and really convenient to use)
To make the color “dipped” case, I taped off a section with washi tape and painted in one side. I took care to get underneath the flap as well, so it would look seamless when opened.
For the stamped case, I simply cut a triangle shape into the eraser of the new pencil, and stamped away.
The really nice thing, is that you can use your FSA or HSA funds toward the glasses too! So, if you have some leftover money to burn before the year is up, consider treating yourself to a nice pair of DK glasses. The try-on and ordering process takes a couple weeks, so you have just enough time to get your order in this year.

David Kind recently added a few new styles and colors. I first tried the style I’m wearing in this picture, The Baldwin, in “Blackwood” and I liked the fit but it didn’t look quite right for my face. Once I tried it on in “Horizon,” I was sold. It’s a little bit retro, a little bit modern…I love it. The Moline is also a new frame and has the same retro feel, if you’re looking for a similar frame with a different shape.
