Free Organization!

This is the beginning. The beginning of a little boy room remodel. My boys have informed me they would like their room to look different...more "big boy". I've had this free free cheap cheap project rolling around in my brain ever since, because let's face it....boys need organization!

We started with this. Target diaper boxes (which we are finally almost done with...YAY!!) I used cloth diapers with both my boys...until my youngest decided to get ENORMOUS before he was potty trained...and I couldn't justify buying the whole next size in cloth for just a few months. We have also been organizing closets and getting rid of t-shirts that are GINORMOUS (do you remember the '90's?) They came in VERY handy for this project!!!

First I taped the box flaps down inside the box.

Cut the t-shirt into pieces to cover the box.

Sew it all together, stretch it over the box, add a felt star and VOILA! Super cute, FREEEEEEEE organization! I have three more boxes to cover and add to their "big boy" room! These boxes are really sturdy and could be covered in ANY fabric to match any decor! Go crazy! :-)

I also snatched up a FREEEE set of lockers on Craigslist....
I'm seeing a theme developing here. ;-)
I'll show updates as they happen!

Oh! And don't forget to enter my basket giveaway HERE!!!!

  1. Great idea! Those boxes can hold all sorts of little boy treasures.


  2. I love this idea! I have a few empty diaper boxes and I need more storage for toys. I'm adding this to my project list.

  3. Brilliant and CHEAP! Love it! I didn't know how well stretchy and large t-shirts would look on cardboard. I can't wait to see the rest of your big boy room.

  4. How clever and creative. Great storage idea. Love your family rules too!

  5. Very creative! Cute too! Dropping by from BNOTP, #7.


  6. I love this! It turned out great! I don't have diaper boxes, but I'm sure you could do this with any box...I'm totally going through my basement tonight to find one :)

  7. So cute! I love how the boys' big boy room starts with a diaper box. ;)

    I've been saving some to line and use for storage also and had no idea where to start. The tshirt looks great!

  8. Very clever. Cannot wait to see the room.

  9. That turned out really cute!

  10. I just followed your link at Tatertots and Jello's subway art link party to your blog and I love it. I will definitely do this idea for my amazingly disorganized little boys. Thanks!


I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
