DIY: Recovered Storage Cube

0

Probably one of the easier DIYs I’ve attempted, recovering a storage cube was a fast project and pretty cheap! Plus, I love the finished product!

I had been on the lookout for a storage cube on the clearance aisles of Target for quite a while. I finally happened upon one one day for about $13! It was a pretty turquoise shade, but I was really wanting to recover it with something more neutral but that had a fun pattern.

I grabbed some printed cotton from Hancock Fabrics and was good to go!

I loved this geometric print and thought it was be a nice contrasting print in my living room.

Supplies:
  • Storage cube
  • 1 Yard of Fabric
  • Staple Gun (with staples!)

1. Measure around the four sides of your cube to see how much fabric you need for the sides. Add about 3 inches of width to cover some on the top and bottom. Cut off the excess (you’ll use this to cover the lid).

2. Fold under the edges and iron.

3. Remove the plastic coasters from the bottom of your cube if it has them.

4. Line up the fabric and pull tightly. Staple on. (Seriously, it’s that easy.) Replace the plastic coasters to the bottom of the cube (I used a hammer).

5. Do the same with your lid. Align your fabric correctly and fold the fabric under on the corners. Staple to secure! It’s certainly not perfect, but hey, I’m not selling it! I would highly recommend this DIY to anyone (if you can use a staple gun, you can figure it out!).

You can see where the fabric overlaps at this corner. I used a couple of staples near the bottom and the rest on the inside.

Make sure the fabric is secured with staples on the inside and bottoms of the cube. You should be set!
