There's something magical about parents. They have this ability to turn the least likely objects into the coolest things. Take for instance these empty diaper boxes. What once was plain old cardboard is now super cool storage fit for your living room or play area!
Amy over at Positively Splendid is always looking for a way to upcycle or recycle what she can. She's recently done a bang up job with these diaper boxes with minimal supplies.
Since the boxes already provide great structure, she used spray adhesive and fabric (along with some minimal sewing), to create the look you see above. The color scheme is tailored for her living room and would be completely customizable for your own home.
These bins would be great for storage of all sorts and since you can make them in any color or add any graphics to the outside that you wish, they can also serve as a great way to help kids learn to keep things tidy. Although you can buy canvas boxes at the store, it's rare you come across one that has a rock pictured on the outside of it, letting your child know that's where his collection of "rare outdoor and playground finds" can live and have a proper home.
