Boxes Upcycled to Drawer Organizers

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Here’s a project that’s green in more than one way.  Lauren blogs at The Thinking Closet, and decided it was time to reorganize her craft drawers.  Her budget was tight, so she had to use what she had to optimize her storage and organization.

What Lauren had was a collection of cardboard boxes of all shapes and sizes.  She cut the boxes down to the appropriate sizes for her drawers, then covered them with pretty, inexpensive contact paper in a green floral pattern.  The boxes made great dividers and storage boxes for all kinds of craft supplies, and they are fun to look at, too.

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my project here today! To say I’m OVER-THE-MOON-EXCITED is even an understatement.

    You rock, Beckie Farrant!

    • Thanks for all the love, Lauren! This type of project is what Roadkill Rescue is all about. You are going to get tons of use out of those boxes, I’m sure!
