Boxes into Baskets

As you all know, I am still working on my {Half Bathroom Remodel}. *Sigh* We have now added some shelving and I have been looking for some budget storage. Cheap, cute baskets can be hard to come by. So I racked my brain and came up with this wonderful substitute, turning boxes into baskets. Affiliate links are provided below for convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure. This basket is made from an ordinary cardboard box, 4 ply jute, a hot glue gun, many glue sticks, and a whole lot of love. First, using scissors, I cut the flaps off the box. Next, I wrapped my sad, flap-less box with the jute, gluing every bit of it along the way. Then, I continued wrapping and wrapping and wrapping. Finally, when I reach the top, I was so excited, as if I had just climbed my way to the peak of Mt. Everest. To finish off the basket, I quickly whipped up a custom size liner using inexpensive, white muslin fabric. I love the look and it really didn’t take too long. Now, I just need to make a few more of these to shove on my bathroom shelves. * Update: A tutorial on How to Make a Custom Basket Liner is now available!
