Office Storage

I love the matching office supplies my mom got me a year or two ago.  There is a pencil cup, tray, two boxes, and a magazine box, and they are all in different forms of black and white damask with little bits of red here and there.  I was thinking lately that I just needed a few more storage pieces for office things.  I had recently seen a post online about making your own magazine boxes with cereal boxes.  Last night I dug into this project as well.

I cut the cereal box top off and cut the sides on an angle.  I then recovered the box by glueing some black and white skull material (I have a thing for skulls right now) over all outter sufaces.  It was easy and cheap and I think it goes well in the office space.  Now I have one more storage box.  More to come in the future.

I didn't take a before picture of the empty cereal box, but here is the finished product.

There it sits next to the other box on the shelf of our pocket office.

Also, another little office update.  Tony finally installed the frame for the projector picture.  The wall at least appears empty for a reason now.  I kind of like it.  It almost looks a little purposefully quirky when the projector isn’t on.

    Thanks! It really is super easy and cheap. And, you can really use anything to cover them. I’m going to do a couple more in wrapping paper!
