For those who have been following me for a while you know I like to take things ordinary and remake it into something else. Trash to treasure is my game. Like for example a long while ago I took an old dresser top mirror and made it into a faux fireplace you can view that here. I like getting my apartment therapy on! ha! Well I had a new idea. I am currently blogging in the Hormel Extended Family Bloggers program. You can view about thathere. So each month I will be getting a large cooler to my door that looks like this....
It is a large sturdy box and I hated to throw it away. I had an idea sparked by inspiration of storage boxes by Ikea & storage boxes from Yorkshire Linen ! I thought I could turn this cooler box into a storage box for Baby M's toys! It will also double as a foot prop when people are sitting on the couch or also a place to lay books when reading! I baby sit baby M and since we live in a limited space apartment her toys really took up more space then I could let go of.
I happen to already have some cute contact paper in the colors I like. I simply covered the box in that and did not even need glue! I think I will be going back and covering the inside too soon.I also purchased a remnant piece of material this weekend for super cheap. I covered the top with that and hot glued it in place. This box is so kid friendly if it gets majorly messed up I can recycle it out. I love the fact there are no hinges to hurt Baby M's little hands. Her toys are now out of the way & out of site when not in use in a cute way. I love this upcycle because I hate the throw out something that can be reinvented into something useful! You can't beat a project that only takes minutes to do that helps me to organize our life.
