I have a confession. I have a real problem, which I think a lot of us
ladies ladies AND gentleman have. Come on guys, you know you’ve peaked! What is this problem that I speak of… PINTEREST!! I probably spend more time on Pinterest looking at craft projects to complete than actually completing them. What’s worse is craft room organization!! Even though I love my craft room, I am always drooling in awe of the perfect craft rooms that I see online. Are they all practical? Maybe, maybe not, but they are so cute!!
A few months ago I go Ikea storage units because I was tired of stacking all of my 12 x 12 products on the floor. I have Target storage with fabric bins that are great, but not so great when trying to store bigger supplies. I decided to finally take the plunge into the Ikea storage and I am so glad that I did!
One I bought the storage units I got to work building them. Yes, that’s right, I BUILT THEM!! All by myself!! I was so proud. I like to build all of my craft room furniture because it makes me feel a little more proud when I look around my room at the building accomplishments. Also, if I mess something up, I only have myself to blame. 😉 After building them, I starting
shoving putting stuff nicely into the units. After everything was put where I wanted it I stepped back and thought, “Ewwww, this is not at all attractive.”
Everything fit so nicely, but I knew I had to do something about the appearance. I didn’t want to spend money on buying 12 new storage bins to fit in my cubbies so I went back onto Pinterest.
There are so many Ikea ideas and hacks, as they are called, on Pinterest. Some of them even made it onto a few of my pin boards. I couldn’t find anything I liked so I gave up. I went back to my day and then it hit me!! I have a lot of cardboard boxes that I have saved over the years, just in case I felt like making a mini album cover, but that hasn’t happened yet, along with every other crafting project on my to do list. That’s when I came up with this amazing idea!
I hot hot glued 12 x 12 paper onto the front of some cardboard and I was done with my new storage solution. Want to know how I did it? Watch the video to find out!!
