Many times I find great deals on boxes or containers that would be great for storage, but they don’t really match my decor. I picked up this tray for 75% off after Christmas, but it could have easily been one I got as a gift as well. These are great for storage! Don’t toss them, refinish them.
I used some cheap contact paper I already had. This can easily be found at dollar stores.
As you can see I simply set the box on the rolled out paper, pulled up the sides to make sure it would cover and cut.
Next I creased the corners to see where to cut the corners.
I then peeled off the backing and began sticking. I found it easiest to pull the sides up taught and smooth from one side to another.
After all sides are smoothed, I cut a ‘v’ out at the top of the corner. This way it smooths well as it is folded down.
The finished product is great for open shelf storage.
