Cardboard planter

$30
2 Hours
Easy

This is a project I decided would be fun to try. I took a cardboard box from work. I used 3 types of Rust-oleum spray paint, a stencil and, Never Wet. It's not exactly what I wanted but I learne a lot for next time.

    This idea, can be use for may ways. Like your shoe idea with wine dividers for a family, or for order in the linen closet for bed sheets, pillow case, flat and fitted sheets, blankets. Nice.
