These bins look so expensive, and the best part is, you can customize them match your decor. Basically, all you have to do is cover the box with fabric and add the snazzy leather handles made from old belts.

  • cardboard box
  • packing tape
  • rotary cutter and mat or scissors
  • fabric
  • spray adhesive
  • an old leather belt
  • binding post screws
  • flathead screwdriver
  • industrial hole punch or X-ACTO knife

Add an hour of your time and you’ll be on your way to a cuter, more organized space.
