Recently I’ve been working on creating my home office/craft room. Today I’m sharing a little project that I recently completed in the quest for some great storage ideas for the room.

I had some wooden storage bins that were originally navy blue, but were spray painted black last year. With my office makeover, I found some great fabric for curtains and decided to paint the bins green to coordinate with the fabric. The paint I used was Krylon’s Ivy Leaf.

I wanted to do something different and fun for the inside of the bins. I thought it would be fun to pull out the yellow in the curtains. I found some great 12″x12″ yellow and white honeycomb scrapbook paper. For each side and bottom of the bins, I cut the paper to fit and used Mod Podge to decoupage the paper to the inside of each storage bin.

I made sure to trim the paper to the exact size needed. I brushed the Mod Podge to the inside of the bin, applied the paper and then worked the bubbles out of the paper using a straight edge. After waiting about 20 minutes, I applied a layer of Mod Podge over the paper.

The look of the yellow against the green is perfect! They bring out the colors in the curtains and give some added pizzaz to the bookcases.

This is such a quick and easy update for any wooden storage bin. It’s a fun look too!

You can check out a few other projects that I’ve done for my home office like my faux bamboo roman shade made from a placemat and my pleated fabric covered stool. The home office/craft room is a constant work in progress, so I’d love for you to stop by House on the Way and pay me a visit sometime. You’re always welcome!

Thank you for letting me share with you today and a big thanks to Sarah for inviting me! Have a great day!
