One Room Challenge-Sping 2014: Week Three

So it is now Week Three of the One Room Challenge! Here we go....
I got a little done in the area of organization. I wanted storage boxes for the navy shelf in the mudroom. After looking around, I decided that most of the options were just a little too plain. Not finding the perfect thing, I decided to just make them.
This was my first attempt. I hated it...

It looked like I just wrapped a bunch of duct tape around a box...which is what I did, but the goal was to look like a classy DIY, not a dumpy box with wrinkled tape lines all over it.
So it was time to try, try again...
Next up was this...

This was more what I was going for with the look of these storage boxes. Such an improvement. Now just 8 more to make. I will post soon with a tutorial.

Be sure to check out my fellow link participants over at Calling It Home.
And if you celebrate it, Happy Easter and/or Passover!


  1. Love the progress! I had some "hate it" moments too this week.

  2. Some days feel like one step back. You are plotting along to progress, and that is all that matters. I like the boxes, they are fun and colorful.

  3. It's so hard to keep going when the first attempt doesn't work- way to go! We'll all get there one step at a time :)

  4. These are going to look so great when you get them all done! And even better, they'll make your mudroom function so well for you and your family! Happy Easter/Passover to you! :)

  5. Progress is good! Sometimes part of the process is figuring out what you don't like or what doesn't work for you. This is going to be such a great space for your family!


  6. THANK you for keeping it real. Yes, not all DIYs are a first time success, but the 2nd attempt is great!! Party on!

  7. Sometimes it's just trial and error. I've had plenty of them too! Can't wait to see your progress.

  8. Glad to see you attempted it a second time. It definitely worked - I'm sure the next 8 will keep getting better and better!

  9. The cubes will be great for organizing! I heart anything that helps with keeping things in their place!
