I’m making progress on my closet!! Slow but steady wins the race – as they say! At this rate I should be done in time to move into assisted living. Anywho…I needed some storage solutions so, of course, I headed off to Ikea. I came home with this ugly thing (no offense intended, Ikea. You know I love you.) I bought it because it came in a pack of three. How pathetic is that? That’s the only positive thing I can say about this item. So as my closet project started to evolve, I thought about what I could do to make this bin look less ugly. All kinds of ideas came to mind involving paint, ribbon, vinyl lettering, etc. I narrowed my list down to what was easiest and cheapest, because while I want it to look great, I don’t want to break the bank. I decided to add ribbon –
I loved the handle that was already on this bin, so I just took a piece of ribbon and placed it over the existing handle and tacked it at the top and bottom.
Then I thought I needed some color, so I edged it in green ribbon to go with the color theme. I just used fabric glue to secure the green ribbon. Easy. Done. Cheap! What do you think? Now I need to do 4 more, just like this one.
