Does anyone else have a habit of hoarding boxes the way I do? It's so hard to find a good box when you need one, so if a fine specimen of a box happens to cross my path, I don't let that sucker out of my sight. I've been stashing mine and my husband's empty Birchbox boxes ever since we started getting them last year. Of course, I had no clue what I was going to use them for, but they were just SUCH GREAT BOXES that I couldn't throw them out.
Unfortunately, the guy boxes are way more awesome than the regular old girl box. It's like a tiny little drawer. I saw a few of them stacked in the corner of my studio and knew immediately that I had to make a tiny little chest of drawers out of them.
I don't know about you, but my husband tends to leave tiny things laying all over the house.. change, receipts, ticket stubs, pocket knives, ear buds.. WHATEVER. So I thought giving him a tiny chest of drawers like this to use will help him keep organized and help me keep my sanity!
|I used chalkboard paint for the faces of the drawers so I can re-label them as needed with chalk markers.|
|As always, a glue gun is key! I just put a little swirl on each corner to glue the shell of the boxes together.|
