Emily of Namely Original is a crafty college student who’s never short on clever DIY’s and always excited to share them. This time she’s taken some boxes headed for the landfill and turned them into organizational bins cute enough to put on display.

This is certainly one of those crafts that begs the question “Why didn’t I think of this?” Not only are these bins essentially free, but they use materials that are easy to come by and can be personalized to match any decor perfectly. Some old boxes, a bit of hot glue, and fabric snagged at a garage sale is all Emily needed to create these chic bins.

If you have a pile of old boxes headed for the curb and are hoping to get organized without spending a pretty penny, head over to Namely Original to get inspired. Emily has even set up a picture tutorial that is easy to follow and well worth a peek.

Thanks, Emily!
