Default Re-purposed beer box

I wanted to make my shelving unit look neater with storage boxes.So I just covered a few beer boxes(had great fun emptying the boxes)lol!

Pic 1; I cut 4cm off the top and used masking tape to hold the flaps together for the height that I wanted.I also made a frame of masking tape around the edge of the box and painted it white because I was using a 12"x12" page and it didn't cover all the way to the edges.

Pic 2; I stuck some double sided tape on the back of the paper.

Pic 3; I stuck the page to the front of the box.

Pic 4; They look neater in my unit.

I want to make a couple more and if I get a chance I'l cover the sides as well.

Thanks for looking
Regards

Default boxes

Wow...they look great. Very cutting edge! A great way to tidy up shelves. I'll be nicking that idea for sure.

Hi cat101,
I bought the unit in Homebase a few years ago.I painted it white and turned it on its side.It suits where I have it better that way.
I haven't been to the new Ikea yet but I have the catalog and they have units very like this.They also have great ideas for storing toys.
With money been tight I thought it best to make my own storage boxes.And I can decorate them any colour or design I like.
Regards
