Fancy Up Some Dollar Store Storage Boxes For Cheap
I bought 5 of these boxes at the dollar store to keep car and other outdoor things in the hall closet. They were kind of plain and since I was keeping them on the top shelf I needed a way to label the contents so I can quickly find the item I need.
I found some pretty ribbon at Michael's which I wrapped around each box and affixed with a glue gun. I got some chalk board paint and painted small pieces of cardboard which I attached to the front (after they dried of course). I can now write a list of contents in chalk on each one.
These boxes have stood the test of time. The labels and ribbon are still on the boxes and I put this together 6 years ago. If I were to repeat this project I would use small pieces of wood for labels instead of cardboard. It's easier to write on :).
