DIY Customized Storage Boxes


Did I ever tell you I love Target? Especially Target sale’s and the Dollar Spot? Well, I do.

I want to show you a small change that I made to a few clearance Target boxes for a custom look.

I found these 3 storage boxes on clearance for $2.48 and two of them were a little beat up so I got an additional 10% off of those. I didn’t mind the color of the bottoms of the boxes but the color block look with the lids on was not what I was going for.


So I picked a roll of wrapping paper from my stash that I have been collecting from HomeGoods to cover the lids.



I traced the box lid on the paper.



Then I cut the paper to fit the box lids with excess to wrap around each side.


I sprayed the lid with spray adhesive and pressed it down inside the traced square.

Then I folded each side cutting a slit in the corners so they would fold easily almost like wrapping a present. I sprayed the paper and the edge of the lid with the adhesive and smoothed the paper around the edges of the lid.

The adhesive was easy to work with and stuck very well.









I wanted to use pretty bookplates for labels and I found these silver ones at Staples. *Note that mine are the 1 7/16 in x 3 1/16 in, not the size of the ones in the link but I couldn’t find my exact ones on the website.

I wanted gold ones but I didn’t feel like going to another store so I just spray painted them.


Here they are all finished! I know that I am going to use one of the boxes for our family memories. I will collect family pictures, cards, etc. that I want to keep and at the end of the year I will file our memories away so we can collect new ones.


As I get more into my office re-do I will decide what is going to be the best use for the other two.


I have been doing a lot of planning but this is the first real step in my new office organization. I have a lot more to come and have been gathering materials (on the cheap) at full force!


Stay tuned for more organization ideas and hopefully office decorating progress soon!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are off to relax in Asheville, NC for a couple nights, woohoo!
