In my pantry I normally stored extra paper towels on the top shelf, which took up valuable space in my small pantry. Then I began storing them in a cardboard box on the floor of my pantry. But let's face it... cardboard boxes are ugly.
So I decided to do a quick makeover with some leftover burlap and my trusty glue gun. I literally took the burlap, wrapped and tucked it in the box and glued it inside. Then I took another scrap piece of burlap and created a cute little bow and glued it on the front. Nothing perfect and super easy.
The box holds about six paper towels, which works for our family. This would work for a larger box, if needed.
I am happy with this easy and quick makeover. Of course it wasn't a necessity, but whatever. You can try this on any box that you would like to reuse and create storage. Some that make work include shoe boxes, larger cardboard boxes, etc.
Hope you try it out! Let me know if you have done something similar.
Until next time!
