A while back I shared with you my No Sew Bench Cushion for my mudroom. I really loved how it turned out but the open storage under the bench seat was not working well for us-it was too cluttered and messy looking for my OCD tendencies.
Enter some thrifty finds and of course-spray paint! I found some large woven baskets that fit the cubbies perfectly at Michaels and snapped them up-they were on sale for $6 this week so if you want some hurry and buy them! They were given a couple quick coats of Krylon Dual Spray paint in Gloss Black.
After the spray paint they needed just a little extra something so I created the numbered tags with some scraps of burlap and chipboard numbers. I just folded the burlap into a rectangle and then folded in half, securing with hot glue. This gave it a little dimension so the tag stuck out a bit from the basket. The chipboard numbers were just spray painted white and hot glued to the tag.
Eventually each of the boys can have their own assigned basket but for now its a free for all! I don’t mind because at least its all contained and much more orderly looking!
Don’t forget-tomorrow the Craft Cuts giveaway is ending so hurry over and enter to win a $30 gift certificate!
Thanks for stopping by!
