Diaper Box Storage

diaper box storage muslim blog
Above is a photograph of my makeover that I did using a special disney princess diaper box that I saved, I think it was the brand 'Huggies'. It originally came with a lid and I used to store the diapers/nappies from my youngest, she is 4 now! It was quite a sturdy box and I was using it to store my children's books. It was getting a bit battered looking so I decided to give it a makeover. Below are some photographs of the original box.


I used some sticky back plastic which I already had in the house to cover the box. I now have a lovely storage box which could be currently used as it is for storing books or could be used as shelving. Below are photographs of the completed storage box.

Do you recognise the sticky back plastic? It is the same one I used for my other project: Plug Organizer Tutorial

I think it came our really well and looks quite trendy now!

  16. Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments. I really do like the colours of this box, I am still using it as storage for my children's books but it would probably look better somewhere on display! Karima :)
