Instead of dropping $100, she used a laundry basket from the dollar store to make THIS!
Finding creative ways to combine storage and decor is always fun, not to mention helpful!
So, Jen from the blog, I Heart Organizing, did exactly that when she came up with an idea to fill the empty space on the shelf of one of her night stands in the guestroom.
“I brainstormed a few different options and landed on some sort of basket to hold a few cozy throws for our guests,” Jen wrote on her blog post about the project. “I really wanted another rope utility basket.”
However, the bigger those bins gets, the more expensive they cost, too, and Jen knew she could spend up to $100 just on something to hold blankets.
“They absolutely are not a guest bedroom budget friendly option,” she wrote.
That’s when she decided she could make one herself, and the results turned out so good!
She started by heading to the Dollar Store to buy a cheap laundry basket in the size she wanted.
The first thing she did after she got her hands on the bin was spray paint the whole thing white.
