Striped Storage

Yesterday while on this blog I saw this photograph of an office done by Erinn Valencich and really liked the striped storage box on that shelf:

I have been wanting to do something with these all white ones for a while now:

So I taped off the two top boxes to make a few stripes:


Not perfect, but I like them better than the all white for now.


Anyway, if you need a little bit of storage these boxes are a great deal and you can get really creative with them!


Little white storage boxes at Ikea for $4.99 for a 2 pack:
