I can’t remember the last time I was so excited about an organizational tip! I have never been a big fan of boardgames, partially due to bad experiences as a child playing with someone who made it life and death to win, instead of fun; and partly because…oh my goodness, all the pieces! Plus, the boxes are all different sizes and shapes and storing them where they are conveniently out of the way means the kids don’t really have easy access to them. This ingenious idea solves the storage problem and creates bright, fun and colorful decor around your home.
Visit Beckie’s blog, Infarrantly Creative, (not a typo – lol – It’s a clever play on her last name.) She gives detailed, step-by-step DIY instructions to create these for your home. Not only is this an inspired organizational idea, but what a great frugal way to decorate kids’ rooms, toy rooms and game rooms. Instead of leaving those walls bare, or trying to come up with extra cash for wall art in those rooms, use the bright colorful board games as no-extra-cost decor.
Another idea as I thought about this: How much more fun to open “board game art” at a birthday party than a rectangular box – same gift, completely different reaction.
Get creative and share your frugal home decorating ideas or ways to reuse something you already have as art. I can’t wait to hear your ideas. And thanks, Becki, for an extraordinarily creative solution to board game storage.
