You can pick these storage cubes up for $10-$20 anywhere (Wal-Mart seems to always have them). But for some reason it’s impossible to make them in anything but ugly fabric. I don’t get it.
But don’t let that stop you.
So grab that ugly storage cube along with a yard of your favourite fabric and a staple gun and you’ve got yourself a custom storage cube.
I’ve been looking for a small bench to place beside the bathtub so I had somewhere to sit when bathing the kids. Besides the toilet or the floor. It’s the perfect size and it even doubles as toy storage. Perfect.
And recovering it was unbelievably easy…
Once you are done stapling take your hammer and hammer in all the staples (mine stuck out a tiny bit). And if you are putting your storage cube on hardwood floors I would cut out a piece of felt and use a glue gun to attach it to the bottom of the cube. Just to prevent the staples from scratching your floor.
