I love this Dollar Store Bin Makeover. It is perfect for home organization. I have less than $3 invested in each bin! A Must Pin!
I picked up the plastic bin at the Family Dollar for $2.00, a can of spray adhesive for $3.00 at the craft store and a yard of Remnant fabric from the fabric store for a $1. At the end of the day I had $3.50 invested in each bin. I am in love with how this dollar store bin makeover turned out!
I LOVE using these over the “plain” plastic bins. It is an affordable solution to expensive Wicker or Fabric Bins. By using fabric it is so easy to customize them to suit your decor too!
You will need enough fabric to cover the bin – depends on the size of the bin but the bin I used is standard size and it took 1/2 yard of fabric. I was able to pick up a Remnant for $1.10 with coupon!
Next I cut four diagonal lines so that I was able to “wrap” the bin.
I sprayed the bottom of the bin well and then I sprayed the fabric as I wrapped and tucked. The more spray you use the stiffer it will be. I liked a less stiff look but that is totally up to you.
Finally I added a piece of fabric to the bottom of the bin and I was done! Allow to dry and enjoy! I made 5 of these for my laundry room. The entire project cost less than $25.
