Office fun

It all started when I walked by these office storage items at Walmart on clearance.  My mind started going..they're cute, but so plain, hmm I really could use some organizing in my "office" area. But, they're so plain. Then I remembered some tissue paper I had picked up a while back for $1.00 and all of the modge podge hoopla around blog land, and I bought them and got busy.



 And ... the finished product

I decided in this process that I have many talents but working with mod podge is probably not one of them, so don't look too closely. Now, off to get the office stuff organized : )

  1. I love them! I have some magazine holders from IKEA to refinish...someday.

    Don't give up on Modge Podge yet...working with it and tissue paper together is impossible! I learned that when I made my Leopard Pumpkins recently...and I use MP all the time. Will never do it again with tissue paper. Hope that helps. :)

  2. There are photo boxes at Michaels that would look awesome with your boxes. I can't see any imperfections :)

  3. They look cute! I would think tissue paper being so thin would be difficult to work with. They still look good!

  13. LOVE that paper! You did great, they look wonderful. I just redid all the storage boxes in my craft studio with old book pages and I'm really loving the change. Mod Podge rocks!

  15. CUTE! I love it! I have issues with MP too. I can't ever get all of the bubbles out without ripping the paper. You did a great job! Love that paper!

  16. I think they're cute! I've never mod podged before, but maybe the tissue is harder than regular paper. Can't wait to see them in your office!

  17. I really like the tissue paper you used. And you can't beat a $1. Boxes are not easy to work with. They look fine. Did you think about maybe putting a solid color tissue paper inside the bins? Just a thought. :) Thanks for sharing. Now I want to Mod Podge something lol. Have a great weekend.

  19. These are stunning, so graphic and elegant! I love that you used tissue paper as lately I've found so many beautiful designs at the stores. It's nice that tissue paper is larger than scrapbook paper so you can cover larger things easily. Would love you to join me at A Crafty Soiree, every Thursday.
