I may be addicted to organizing. This was bothering me big time the other day.
I’ve been wanting to get some baskets to stow away the DVD’s but I was presented with dos problemos.
1. Baskets are kind of expensive.
2. Baskets scratch furniture.
Problem one was solved when I found out I won a $50 Amex gift card from The Handmade Home! You should definitaly hop on over, there is a TON of inspiration.
So off to Target I went in search of the perfect basket. I even measured the length and depth of the shelves first! I only tell you that because I am impressed with myself for not just winging it.
I found these.
Perfect for our black bookcase, one problem though as I said before, baskets scratch furniture.
So this is where the kind of tutorial comes in.
I wanted these baskets so after I left Target I went to Michael’s to pick up black crafters felt. No need to buy the good stuff.
Once I got home I ignored the fact that the kids wanted dinner and started on my little project. (Do you know how long Goldfish crackers can get kids off your back? At least an hour.) I cut the felt pieces to the size of the baskets and then used hot glue to stick them to the bottom.
And that’s all she wrote folks.
I loaded the baskets with the DVD’s and placed them back on the shelf, they slide in like buttah.
Now instead of staring at this.
I get to admire this.
Kind of gives you goose bumps doesn’t it?
Linking to these parties!
