DIY Organizer: Faux Wooden Box is the subject of today’s post.
This DIY organizer idea was born out of necessity and convenience. I had finally had enough of the kindling boxes my dear husband was using for our wood stove.
With regard to function, these boxes were ideal sizes for the kindling, but I found them sorely lacking in the decor department. So, I got out my tape measure and was hoping to shop for baskets or wooden boxes of the same size.
When it occurred to me that this was going to be a time consuming search ( and I wanted a change NOW 🙂 ), I remembered that I had a roll of wood grain adhesive Contact paper in my craft cupboard.
A little bit of measuring, cutting, peeling and sticking…
…yielded some eye-pleasing results!
Contact paper would not have worked well on the smaller uneven fruit box, so I went in search of a similar option.
Can you believe that I found a shoebox in my closet that was the exact same size?? 🙂
As in our organized mudroom, visual uniformity goes a long way toward adding a sense of order and peace.
Now our kindling boxes include both form AND function…and we’re both very happy with them.
What do you think of this DIY organizer?
