Sew Girl
"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."

In the Designer's Words: "So I have been looking at FINALLY putting up curtains in my office. I haven’t seen any premade curtains in stores that I love, so I’ve been searching on Etsy. I stumbled across a fabric I loved then waited for a giant sale at my favorite fabric store.

I tire of things quickly so I know they won’t stay up forever and I’d rather save the money to buy other stuff to go into the room…. so I cut them in half to save money.

Come out and join the #hotmess revolution! The blog post has lots of pictures, hints and a video."

Very pretty fabric that the blogger used and it gives some color to the office. I always sew my curtains but for those that do not sew this is a great way to make some by using the Peel and Stick fabric fuse. I have not used this yet but good to know it is there if you need it. So if you have ever wanted to make curtains but do not sew you can follow this idea and give your room a new look. Great idea.

These are so pretty! Such a great way to liven up a room. I love how these are so colorful.
