Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! The weather has been cooler all week and it's been nice to step outside now that there is so much less humidity!
Our youngest daughter seems to be outgrowing the size of her room and is desperately in need of additional storage. The little table under her bulletin board and stenciled jewelry organizer has a couple of shelves that she can use to store things on, but she needed a big basket on the bottom and a smaller basket on the top shelf.
As you may recall I looked for baskets that would fit on the shelves for awhile, but to no avail. I finally found a wine box that was just the right size, glued on some 4 ply jute string and lined it with a drop cloth. I used a
boot box (shoebox) that my daughter had to make the smaller box. You can see how I made it here.
Shown here is the space that needed more covered storage.
So, if you can't find a basket that's just the right size, you might consider making a faux basket from a wine, shoebox or some other cardboard box.
