Organizing is my life! I don´t know what it is, but it just makes me feel so good! It´s this feeling of being on top of things, being able to find stuff quickly, feeling relieved of tossing unused stuff out, feeling light, not cramped, having an overview of it all…. I guess it´s all of that and more.
So I organize a lot, often and in many spaces. Closets, cupboards, storage room, even inside the boxes I have a system going on. You can call me nuts. I don´t mind. I´m happy when I organize something. So naturally I have a thing for storage boxes and organizers as well. They come in such pretty styles and I love them all! Leading me to today´s post. A 5 minute repurpose of Ikea´s Skubb Box Organizer!

5 Minute Repurpose: Ikea Skubb Box Planter
I found two of the small ones of this set in white at the clearance section at Ikea for 50cents each. But I would have bought the whole set at the normal price as well. They are so awesome for closets and drawers, no need to go into details, you get it.
The fun thing is, that you can collapse them simply by undoing the zipper when not in use, for easy storage, lol! Love it! Even though I did not have a spot for them in mind, I took them home, because that price tag makes organizing even more exciting.
At home I realized, that I forgot to buy planters for the faux green plants I also got at the same time. When I eagerly zipped up the boxes to put them in my closet, I looked at the greens and then at the boxes and then again and I knew that this time I wasn´t going to organize anything. But the planter problem was solved! I just needed to make them a little bit more interesting.
This is what I quickly whipped up in like 5 minutes using grey twine. So all I did here was twist two strings and tie them around the box x3 for each box. No glue, just that. In 5 minutes. And I like the box even better. These two will go on our night tables I think.
Pin this for later!
Yes, that´s all. I didn´t want to add too much stuff to it either, I like it simple and plain, you know. I think the 5 minutes were worth this little repurpose, don´t you?
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
