Organizational {Friday}

Okay, so how many of you have kids? How many of your children have had or still have one of these?

Well, did you know that it would be perfect for your scraproom? I decided to take one of my daughter's toy bins and turn it into a storage bin for my scraproom. Here is what it looked like after the transformation:
You can read about how I created it here. It has quickly become a favorite piece in my scraproom! I hope you can get some awesome ideas from this, and create your own "Scrap Bin." Have fun!

Awesome Idea!! I've seen these at the Goodwill, brand new in box, for very little...but my imagination hadn't kicked in on the idea of 'painting' the plastic bins!! WOW!! I just love how this came out...thanks for sharing such great ideas!

Patter, this is just so stinkin' cute!! Makes me want to steal ours from the kids...think they'd understand? Love it!

that is so amazing... I may have to do this too...my daughters is actually pastel but I love the brown over the primary colors... awesome!
Actually, it would be cute for the family room that way too!

love this idea. Both of my dds have outgrown their bins, so I may borrow this idea. Just not sure if I have the room.
thanks!

mamichelle said...

Wow, that is fantastic!!! Great job!

Juls said...

Wow, I see these bins at Target and I always thought that would be a great thing to have in a scrap area. It's nice that you were able to use it and make it pretty after your kiddos used it.
Great job!

I came over from Scrap Fairy's blog but had to tell you that this is such a great idea! I'm going to tell my best friend to come take a looksee because I think she has one of those. I've thought about getting one of those for my kids' rooms. I don't have a scrap space to use one in right now but love the idea.

Kay said...

I wish I had thought of this a year ago, when I got rid of one of these. That is probably one of the best ideas I have seen. Thank you for sharing--off to find a friend who has one they want to get rid of.

I see these at PriceClub all the time and always think it would be perfect to use in a sb room. But the bright colored bins always distracted me. Who would of thought a paint would make them all pretty! TFS.

Ashley said...

That is AMAZING! I love it!

debhorst said...

Okay I so love that!! Makes me wish I had not gotten rid of mine!!
