My niece got us an Amazon Fire TV for Christmas this year. It is pretty damn cool and we love it. But this post is not about that. I noticed the box was pretty cool with it's overhead compartment which had housed the power cord. In the past I have saved boxes thinking I would do something with them but end up tossing them a few weeks later during a clean up purge. Not this time!
Last month I grabbed the box while waiting for my daughter to finish reading her homework to me and stated playing with it. I must have tried about 15 different configurations before settling on the one that would eventually become a bed for Monster Toralei.
|Settling on the layout|
|I taped the sides down|
|At first I thought the legs would be made of crayon then worried about marks on the furniture|
|So I rolled up some magazine strips with a pencil and wrapped it with the tape|
|Next I measured some foam sheets to go with the bed colors|
|And hot glued it down. I also hot glued at this point the sides of the bed and added a coordinated bed for the cabinet|
|We added a strip of the foam across the top|
|A Monster High banner as decoration|
|And Toralei now has a bed|
|Great box! I had some letters from a Staples Giveaway I won|
|We decided on LOVE and used some Scotch Dots to hold them on|
|We love the way it came out. Photo of Handsome and Goddess going in as soon as I can print it|
