Minimizing Waste by Maximizing Creativity

Weekend DIY: Junky Trunk

Leave a comment


Someone in our apartment building threw this (on the left) away! After I regained consciousness, I dragged it into our apartment, disinfected it, and put my child to work. Oh, you thought I was doing this by myself? Yep. Nope. As part of her well-rounded home schooled education, I will be sure that we engage ourselves in lots of hands-on projects. I just know there is a math, science, reading, and writing lesson in here somewhere.


She supervised this project. I just did all the measuring, cutting, and gluing (I used Mod Podge to adhere the fabric) and hot glue to adhere the trimming.


I’m seeing a bigger toy chest in our future!
