DIY | Stylish Storage Boxes


You have seen my round up of 20 Minimal & Stylish Home Offices[http://homefor4sweethome.blogspot.com/2014/08/get-inspired-20-minimal-stylish-home.html] not too long ago and I was so inspired by all the little things "stylish" in there.
Okay, this is not much but this project makes me feel so giddy inside.
I worked on some boxes to make it stylish for storage in the office.

Although some people might not totally get why do I have to have a "stylish" or "pretty" storage box when a box is after all..just a box.
Well..yeah...a box is just a box...
But for me, what makes me happy are things that are pretty, stylish, beautiful, clean, organized - in short - eye candy.
And what it does is - it makes me want to keep it that way. Handled with care.
Anyway, these boxes can be any boxes that you can find in your home.

I picked all of my wrapping papers from TJ Maxx because they are stylish, inexpensive and continuously large in size.
I decided to wrap the boxes and the lids with different wrapping papers to add an appeal to it but you can always go for the same wrapping papers for both the lid and box if you want.

Wrapping these boxes were just like wrapping a regular gift box. I used scotch tape everywhere that I thought is needed.
Then I was done.

I love Megan and Amy's tutorial how to cover any kind of boxes. Go ahead and check it out because those two are my reference while I was wrapping these boxes.
So happy! Now, I have to find more boxes to wrap.
Until then.

    I certainly don't think a box is just a box. These are absolute little jewels, and everybody's crown needs more jewels. The shot of the bare box stack made me cringe. Great work. Great eye for color and balance.
