I love them for stashing clutter. They aren't expensive, but I prefer things that match a little more seamlessly.
I also really preferred to keep the $6.99 in my pocket
Start with a sturdy, straight sided box like this one. You can even check with local restaurants to see if they'd be so kind as to set a few aside for you.
Trim the handle with an exacto knife.
Then trim the flaps.
A little duct tape reinforces the bottom nicely.
Spray paint in the desired color. This is going in the boys' room.
I had purchased this scrapbooking paper a while back to decoupage their light switch covers just like THIS, so the room will have a very coordinated look.
Lay the box on the paper and sketch the size you need.
Grab your Mod Podge. This stuff lasts forever.
Spread a nice generous coat evenly on the surface.
Then smooth your paper over it, flattening any air bubbles.
Slather a nice even layer over the top of your paper.
Now, while it's wet, take your exacto knife and cut an X where the box handle is.
Fold the wet paper in and smooth the opening with your finger.
Allow it to dry. I then hot glued some white bias tape around the top as trim. One game bin, done!
