I have been slowly deciding what goes back into my living room and dining room after their recent paint updates. Having the room empty for a few days really gave me the push I needed to declutter both rooms and only put back what I really want in the rooms. There are certain things that must go back, but I definitely need to put them back in a much more organized way.
My kids piano books have never really had a home. They would sit in a basket on the floor, but that basket was always overflowing. I knew I needed a better solution. I have a built in book shelf in my dining room and after using some of the home decor books in some of my vignettes, space opened up. I knew I wanted to use magazine holders for the kid's books, so I decided to turn my kid's cereal boxes into magazine/piano book holders.
This is a really easy project...one I put together in less than a half hour yesterday morning. I used two of the same extra large cereal boxes. You want to make sure the box you choose is large enough to accommodate the magazines/books you plan on using it for. I covered the boxes using some temporary wallpaper I had left over from this project.

You could also use contact paper or scrapbook paper with mod podge. The temporary wallpaper was easy to work with and is a little thicker than contact paper which gives the boxes more stability. I covered both the inside and outside of the boxes for a more finished look, but you could certainly just cover the outside.
After covering the boxes, I used my Silhouette machine and printed out these labels.
I cut them out and glued them onto these name tag self-stick badges and then cut it out to size.
Using the badges made my labels self-sticking.
So much more organized than the pile on the floor. Lol
Can't wait to hear what you think.
