Recycle Flat-Pack Cardboard into Storage Boxes [Reuse]

10 Lug/09

IKEA sells its self-assembled furniture in convenient flat-pack boxes, the same kind used by movers for packing large glass. Both leave you with unwieldy cardboard to recycle—unless you get creative with some wallpaper, cutting tools and glue.

That’s how Simona and Flavius put their flat-pack boxes to use in their just-bought IKEA Expedits bookcase. By cutting the cardboard to fold into proper-sized boxes, then applying some unique wallpaper, they made pull-out storage bins that match their decor, save them the money of purchasing those bins, and reduce the amount of driveway-blocking cardboard lugged out to the curb.

Found your own creative re-uses for unwieldy flat-pack boxes, flat-screen TV boxes, or other irregular containers? Tell use what you did with them in the comments.
