DIY Gold Box Organizers

DIY Gold Box Organizers

DIYs just make me so happy. Here's one that will give you something to do with all of those cereal boxes that you always think, I can make something out of these, but usually end up throwing them away. I've been hoarding boxes for months now because I've had a plan. So glad to finally do something with them and share the joy that is organization! 

Who can relate to me when you search for organizers and come across beautiful ones, but when you look at the price, you have to pinch yourself? I just don't get why a piece of plastic or wood has to be so expensive. I blame Target's expensive organizers for my lack of organization. Hahaha! Anywho, this is why I am just so excited about this DIY. I am on my way to having a prettier bathroom cabinet! 

Here's what you'll need:

  • Misc. boxes (cereal, oatmeal, etc.)
  • Gold spray paint - I used Krylon Metallic Gold
  • Paper cutter
  • Double-sided tape
  • Pen
  • White card stock paper (not pictured)

Step 1

Open your boxes at both ends and flatten.

Step 2

Mark where you need to cut. You can decide what height you would like for your boxes. If you are using them for your drawers, measure the height of your drawer and mark your boxes accordingly. Mark both ends of your boxes. 

Step 3

Use your guides and trim both ends of your boxes with your paper cutter. I am trimming mine at 4", so it helps to have a ruler so you don't have to mark every single box. 

You will end up with two boxes like this:

Spray paint your boxes on the outside only.

Place double-sided tape where the former adhesive was and firmly secure shut.

Step 6

Cut out pieces of card stock to fit inside the bottom of your boxes.

Use any paper you like. I was just thinking how pretty it would be to use paper with designs on them. You could also use washi tape to line the top edges of the boxes to add a pop of color. 

And you're done!

I plan on revamping my whole bathroom cabinet with these. Aren't they so easy to make? I love repurposing things. It feels good to know that I didn't spend an arm and a leg on organizers!

I hope you guys enjoyed this new DIY! I'm telling you - I have tons of DIYs that are sitting on the back burner until I find the time to do them. My little one is king of my life, so it's hard to squeeze in "me" time. DIYs are so relaxing. 

Have an amazing day, and check back for more!
