From the blogger: "When reorganizing our linen closet and open shelving last fall, I decided enough was enough and went in search for a way to collect our family's hats, gloves, and scarves that is both pretty and functional. I was determined to find an attractive solution that would be easy for the whole family to access, would fill the opening, and would hide the mess. The problem is, that the opening itself is a very awkward size at 16”H x 11.5”D x 20.5”W. And the cost of a basket that would only fit half the height of the opening can run close to $50! I nearly gave up on the whole project. That is, until one day I realized that an economy size box of baby diapers is practically the perfect size for our space. All I had to do was find a way to turn an ugly baby box into something pretty."

Estimated Cost$21-$30

Oh Wow you have got to check out this tutorial on making a twine wrapped storage box using a diaper box. This looks so neat. I love it and you can use other size boxes too to make it whatever size you need. All you have to have is the box,some fabric(which I am sure you have in stash pile )and twine which you can get at the dollar store. These will look great anywhere. They can cost alot in stores so why not DIY some yourself.
