You gotta love “free” storage. And even better if it’s pretty too. A couple of weeks ago I finally bought some new storage for my shoes, instead of the boxes that they were in. You can check out that post here from last week. So I was left with a bunch of empty shoe boxes and then I had a great idea to organize one of my cabinets in our Laundry Room. And you can check out what the Laundry Room looks like right now here.
I already had some pretty wrapping paper. I went with some double sided paper I already had, that I bought at Ikea about 2 years ago for a $1 a roll. I wanted to use black & white, because the Laundry Room color is already a blue/green color and I love how black & white looks with it.
I didn’t use this one yet, but I will once I finish up the other cabinets in the room.
Then I wrapped this box and oops I didn’t mean to wrap it this way on the short end. But since it was all taped already and I didn’t want to waste the paper, so I decided I needed to add something to the box to hide my oops.
So I used some frames I just recently bought on Etsy to make some free labels for the boxes.
I just printed them on regular paper and cut them down to size.
I love how they came out. It basically covered up my oops and I know what’s in the box also.
This is the cabinet that I needed to organize. Yikes!!! Yup we just throw things in this cabinet.
I took everything out of the cabinet and put certain things away where they should be and everything else that was small went into these two boxes. Much better. I still have work to do to all of the cabinets in the Laundry Room, but this was a good start.
Let’s get a little closer.
Yes for right now the other label does say “Misc”. It might change over time, but all I will have to do is print out a new one for “free”. 😉
I actually bought these from Michael’s the other day. They were on sale for $3.59 each. they might just end up in the Laundry Room too. We will see. I could use them in so many different places in the house. We will see where they end up.
Have you made some free storage for your home? What did you use that was free? Did you make it prettier with wrapping paper or craft paper? What did you use? I would love to see your projects, so leave a link in the comments section.
Thanks for stopping by everyone!!! Have a great day!!!
