Let’s face it – keeping a tidy ship is not one of the biggest virtues in this household! We make a mess and mostly that makes me happy because it means that we are alive and kicking and have three heads full of creative ideas. This weekend the girls and I (7 and 9) turned trash into treasure and made it a bit more easy and a lot more pretty to get organized.
- 1 Ikea box
- two pieces of fabric from the stash
- 8 nails
Et voila; a pretty place to put pictures, notes and ongoing paper projects.
Tips and tricks:
Glue two pieces of cardboard together to make it more sturdy.
Don’t be too fussy about the execution. We taped the fabric to the backside – it probably wont last forever, but then we have an excuse to make a new project in a few months.
If you dont have cardboard you can also use styrofoam.
Use whatever fabric you have lying around. Old sheets, maybe a T-shirt or a skirt or a tablecloth. We had this pretty fabric from Ikea lying around designed by Lotta Kühlhorn– but the point is; don’t run of buying new if you would like to be totally sustainable.
Have fun and remember to do this WITH your kids and not for your kids.
