Storage Solution

I always have piles of projects stacked on my desk (and everywhere else) and my husband has commented a few times about how it would be nice to have a little spot for his things to go so they won't get lost in the shuffle.
I was going through my daughter's closet the other day and noticed a wooden box that came with a toy. Bingo! The perfect storage solution.
I sanded it down a little and then painted it black. Then I scuffed up the edges with sandpaper.
Put some cute paper in it and sealed everything with a coat of modge podge.
Last I got this cute hardware and attached it to the front.
Okay the real last I piled everthing in it and admired it.

I have another one (they come with every Doug and Melissa toy) that I am thinking of painting white and using a pink cut glass knob on the front and pink paper in the inside for jewelry storage.


  1. This is a great idea. I love reusing these sorts of things.

  2. I love that you put some hardware on it - such a great idea.

  3. Great use of the wooden box.

  4. Perfect...guys always let their stuff "float" around the house, don't they? :)

  5. This is great Harst. Maybe you could save me a few boxes from your purchase of Doug and Melissa toys :)
