Cute Photo Storage Boxes

I'm sure everyone has seen the plain jane white photo storage boxes that you can get at Hobby Lobby for about $4.00. (Even cheaper if you get it during the half off sale, which I always do!) Well I've got a few that I don't use for photo storage but for office storage.  These offer a much cuter alternative then the typical desk matching organizers. Here is the before of the box. Ummm can we say, not so cute?

ZzZzZ... such a snooze...

Here are mine all jazzed up!

Yellow is my FAVORITE color!  It's so bright and cheery :) My craft office room is painted a pale green color and is accented with yellow.  When I walk in this room to do stuff I instantly feel calm.  The green is so soothing and the bright pops of yellow aren't enough to make you go crazy!

This little project was super easy.  All I did was recover the lids with fabric.  I found the yellow damask fabric online and I LOVE it.  I like black and white damask too, but this is a little more subtle. Here are a few more shots of the cutie photo, oops I mean storage boxes!

Man do I love that fabric!  You will see just how much I love it because it's all over my craft office room. Now I just need to make a few more for all the little knick knack things that need a home!

Don't forget to stop by Scraptastic Saturday and link up your scrap related projects!  I love seeing your ideas!!
