"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Sometimes it can be hard to find home accessories that fit your vision. Don't stress yourself with finding the perfect decorations - instead, make your own DIY home decor! Throw pillows are a great place to start when refurbishing your living room or bedroom. These DIY Painted Pillow Patterns make it easy to customize your accessories to match the rest of the room, whether it has a modern, classic, or more natural style. Make your decor even more versatile by painting a different scene on either side of a throw pillow and varying which side you display.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a nice idea. My first thought was whether or not the paint would be stiff and end up cracking. I also wondered about the paint bleeding past the stencil edges. If I could not find the kit, what paints could I use instead to achieve the effect? So, I went to the Paint a Pillow website to look at their FAQ. Unfortunately, it is blank. Can anyone answer these questions for me?

I wanna say that canvas pillow covers can be found at Michaels craft store. I think I have seen them there in the past. In fact, pillow forms are sold as well. It would be a fun quest to decide what stencils I'd like to pick for my pillows. There are so very many! You do not have to be an artist for this DIY. That's a plus for many of us.

I've never painted fabric before, I bet his is the best way to get unique home designs that fit in well with your theme and mood. Beside with this creative idea, you don't have to settle for that colour that's a shade too light. Thanks for sharing this with us, it's time to get those funky throw pillows for my home.

As the author says, it can be so true that you just can't find the perfect touch for your home, whether it is color, design or texture. Painting your own gives you that custom vibe you are looking for. For the very creative and artistic, skip,the stencil and free hand your design by looking at something that can give you some inspiration within your ability and taste. Creating so,etching uniquely yours can give you such satisfaction and a real sense of accomplishment!
