Pam blogs at diy Design Fanatic, where she claims that necessity is the mother of invention. “I looked for at least 2 months for a basket for our daughter’s room. I looked at Marshall’s, HomeGoods, Ikea, TJ Maxx, Target, but didn’t have any luck. None of the baskets were the right size.” One day, walking out of Trader Joe’s, she spotted an empty box that was the perfect size, and was desperate enough to bring it home!
Pam was convinced that she could turn this empty cardboard box into something just as cute as the decorative baskets she’d been eyeing at all those other places. The solution was pretty simple: she used hot glue to attach jute to the cardboard as she wrapped it around the box, effectively covering up the cardboard. She made a simple dropcloth canvas insert to cover the inside. The result? You would never guess this used to be a cardboard box! Awesome makeover, right?
