Recovering Boxes!

I’m so glad that you have stopped by Anne’s Attic – design! I just love quests. Today I am going to show you how I have recovered boxes to use for extra storage. I sure that we all can use a little more storage! Covering them will make them blend into your homes decor.

You will find with my blog that you will get a lot of fun pictures and not a lot of talk. I’ve always been known to be a Women of few words. So here we go!

Start by collecting your boxes that you want to use. I have my work station out in the open so I need it to stay quite tidy. These boxes are one’s that I have stored my supplies in and some I use in my vignettes. I love the beautiful colors of blue so I use these colors to keep the eye moving around my rooms, instead of just a lot of the oatmeal look where everything just blends in.

Many shapes work best. I found a darling round hat box at the thrift store to use in my vignettes but the color just didn’t work. When you think of covering your boxes think of gift wrapping, that’s all there is to it!

I can’t imagine that I really had these orange boxes just sitting on my work bench. Look at the transformation!

Wa La! So cute.

All of these fabric pieces I have used on the aprons that I made. So with a glue gun it didn’t cost me a penny.

I think the box turned out so cute or is it the little helper that I have today!

I really like the way this gold box turned out.

Here is my pile of my helping boxes ready to be filled.

I use this round hat box in one of my vignettes. LOVERLY!

Something that is so easy and useful has a great impact on my decor. I also put book covers on books that I need to leave out because I use them often. I covered them in scrapbook paper that is a neutral color, I just wanted these to blend in.

I hoped this gave you some inspiration to cover some of yours. Any box will work. Heavy shoe boxes are great and you would never know that they are shoe boxes. Trick of the trade.

Life is LOVERLY when you are doing what you love!
