Storage Bin to Toy Box Makeover!

1,949,498 Views
I was tired of looking at the ugly plastic bin I’ve been using as a toy box, but I didn’t want to spend money on an actual toy box. I decided to just give the bin a little makeover. It just took some wrapping paper, burlap, rope and fence post caps to go from boring to cute and still functional.
Time: 2 Hours Difficulty: Easy

    What a great idea! I often wanted to decorate my toy bins, but plastic is difficult to adhere to!? This is so smart. though, and you can customize to match decor in whatever room it sits in! Thanks! :)

    Wow, what an amazing idea for those inexpensive totes. Can't wait to try one for the grandkids. And my daughter and hubby will love them too.
