This must be the thriftiest but super chic-looking wall decor that I've seen. It could turn out really artistic too if you decided to paint the box cover with some of your colouring page projects or use pieces of your kid's paintings. I still don't know how to attach them to the wall but I'll figure it out.

I have so many shoe boxes that I never want to just throw away and this is such an innovative way to use them. These would make awesome and unique gifts too!

These are so cute. I took an old flower delivery box, the kind long stem roses come in and did it in a wood look paper. I put it on the wall and have small light weight now breakable items on it. It looks just like a wood shelf and yet it didn't cost me very much, just around $2.99 for the covering from a stores shelf paper aisle.

These are perfect for decorating a boring cubicle. Loves it!
