Before and After: Tater Box Turned Clothesasaurus

Before and After: Tater Box Turned Clothesasaurus

The Clothesasaurus is a great predator of the Early Salacious period. It can be found lurking in the bedroom of Sebastian and Ruby (who you may remember from their lovely room tour a while back). Their mom, Rachel, found this seen-better-days potato storage bin at a thrift store, and with wit, ingenuity, and a bit of paint, transformed it into a laundry bin any kid would love. Click through for the "after" photo.

Rachel explained the practical rationale behind this fun project on her site, Smile and Wave:

"It's one of the ways I'm hoping to teach Sebastian how to take care of his space. We've named it the Clothesasaurus and told him to put all his dirty clothes into the dinosaur's belly because he's always hungry. Then we explained how we'd take them out once he was full and wash them before hanging them back up. I think he's game!"

For more photos of Clothesasaurus, as well as many, many more inspiring DIY ideas, be sure to check out Smile and Wave. Rachel also keeps an Etsy shop called Pony Party, where she sells her best vintage finds. (The shop is on new-baby hiatus right now, but you can sign up to be alerted when it re-opens its doors.)
