One problem you may run into with moving is the sheer number of cardboard boxes in your home after the deed is done. They’re taking up space and they’re an eyesore. Luckily, there are a few things you can do with your moving boxes. Here are a few creative ideas for leftover moving boxes.
1. Extra Storage
Since your movers in Chester County, PA used cardboard boxes to move items, you can be sure that they offer plenty of storage. They’re just not pretty. You can change that by using fabric, foam, and other materials to cover the exterior of the cardboard box.
Simply use some tacky glue or fabric glue to attach the foam or fabric to the cardboard box. You can even fill the inside of it to do away with the cardboard look. You’re left with new storage bins that you can use to hold magazines, seasonal clothes, or even decorations.
2. Picture Frame
If you have a lot of pictures but no frames, then you can amend that with your moving boxes. All it takes is a strong pair of scissors or an Exacto knife. Measure the length and width of the picture you intend to frame. Then measure the width of the frame. Cut the frame out according to your measurements.
Then you can glue each side of the frame together. You can either insert the picture within the frame, use a backing to secure it, or just attach the picture to the frame with some glue, tacky puddy, or with Command Strips.
3. Small Cities
Kids will love transforming moving boxes into buildings. They can help you draw doors, windows, and other decorations for the building. You can even cut out a door to let them inside of the box. Before you know it, you could have an entire city of boxes for your children to play with.
They can even use their toys to create a whole story within the city. Allowing your children to convert the boxes into buildings allows them to let their imaginations run wild.
Once you’ve had your fun repurposing boxes, or are ready to declutter, you can recycle. You can take the used boxes to your local recycling center to reduce the amount of waste, and clear your home.
