I am in the process of making my "mud-closet" (it's like a mudroom, in a closet) and when I have a project I walk around my house looking for things I can re-use which is probably why my house will never be "done." I found a stash of these little woven boxes at the $1 store recently and thought they were pretty cute and hey, can't beat a $1 , so I bought a few.
Well, they were being used in the art supply cabinet but they have been "reassigned." I decided to use them in the mud-closet, one each for me and the husband to throw our miscellaneous belongings (keys, wallet, etc) in when we walk in the door. But as I was carrying them out of the craft room something caught my eye. Ten seconds later I had this...
Squeeeee! How much cuter is this?!?
Want to see how I made it?
Here's a sneak peek into my work-in-progress mud-closet...
$2, ten seconds and done. Now this is my kind of DIY!
