How many boxes come into our lives each week? Cereal boxes, Kleenex® boxes, diaper boxes, Amazon boxes… the list goes on. Most of the time, we toss the boxes in our recycle bin and never give them a second thought… but did you know you can use those boxes to decorate your home? I have done it time and time again. Here are a few examples:
See this lint box? It started out as an oversized Cheerios™ box from Costco! (See the full tutorial here.)
… And that “Laundry Sign”? Yep. It started out as a cardboard box! (See the full tutorial here.)
I’m not the only one holding onto my cardboard boxes. Check out these amazing transformations!
