While on one of my many treks hauling trash to the garbage, I made a discovery. I found five of these containers piled next to the garbage can that someone had thrown away.
Now, I know I was in the middle of changing my ways, but I could just see how wonderful these could be for storing my collection of picture books! I love the colorful storage bins from the dollar stores, but most of them are too small for large picture books.
I simply took the new containers, painted them with leftover wall paint, made some labels to go on front, and now I have some great "free" containers for storing my picture books.
I especially like how the picture books can be stored facing the front. I think these will look great on my shelves (and now that my books are organized, hopefully I can find them now when I need them).
I am linking up with Elizabeth and Fun in Room 4B for her Fabulous Find Friday linky party.
