It's the old cardboard box that I planned to cover and use in the cube storage unit in my newly organised Laundry room cupboard.
Well I couldn't use the scrap of fabric remnent I originally planned because, as it turns out, it wasn't quite big enough..
So I went and bought a metre of acid green ultra-suede from my local fabric store. Cost $12.. [about 6 quid for the Brits] and I only used half for this project. I shall use the rest to cover a couple of the boxes on the shelf in the closet that have nasty things in like Tax
returns and Bill's old divorce paperwork.
I know it's not pretty.. but it serves a purpose and to paraphrase a favourite blogger of mine Benita Larsson of Chez Larsson "It's going to be used, not scrutinized'..
Besides.. it could be lined with the remaining fabric if that was an issue... but for me it's not.
This cute handle I found yesterday at Red Living for just $2.99. Bill cut the screws down for me because they were too long. Normally of course they'd have to reach through a 1/2 inch or so door or drawer, but here they only needed to reach through the cardboard, so he took off about 1/4 inch.
I know I should have included the washers in the photo above...
I used two washers on the back side of the screw.. again for extra strength.
