I had some extra scraps from a chair I recovered that I really liked and wanted to reuse again, but wasn’t sure exactly what to do with it. I took a walk around the house to see if anything would come to mind when a light bulb came on in the garage. I saw some cardboard boxes waiting to be recycled and knew that I could easily cover them and use them for storage in our bedroom.
- Cardboard box
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Measuring tape or ruler
WHAT TO DO
Lay out a large piece of fabric on a flat surface and place the cardboard box on top. Next, measure and mark 1 inches on all sides of the box. Start cutting the fabric along the one inch mark towards the box. You will repeat this step 8 times.
The remaining fabric will resemble a cross. Starting with one end of the box and fabric, apply hot glue and fold over until secured in place. Hold for a few seconds until the glue is dry. Repeat this step for all corners.
Once all 4 sides are complete, you’ll have a fabric covered box ready for use! I ended up putting a fake plant in ours to give our bedroom corner some color. What do you think?!
