YOU don’t have to spend a fortune on themed nursery accessories because one lady has created her own amazing storage boxes for just a few pounds.
The savvy mom picked up a few Disney Princess canvas bags from Poundland and used them as blankets for her otherwise boring storage cubes.
Sharing his idea on Facebook in the Extreme Coupon and Great Deals in UK group, she wrote, “I saw tons of cushions with the bags, but I tried something different.
“Poundland canvas bags cut and glued onto ikea kallax boxes.”
The Kallax unit is a popular choice from the Swedish furniture brand, and parents are constantly finding clever ways to spruce them up.
It seems parents love the cheap canvas bags too, as others have responded to comments to reveal that they have done the same.
One woman revealed that she used the same bags to create her own cushion covers, but chose the characters of Winnie the Pooh instead.
She wrote: “It looks fabulous, I braved and made pillows the other day. Now I’m looking for Olaf, Kristof and Sven to make pillows for my other daughter.”
And another thrifty woman said she used a sheet instead.
She wrote: “I did the same with an old bed sheet.
The idea has been a treat with the rest of the group with the post since it racked up over 4.5,000 likes and comments.
“What a great idea, I’m leaving for Poundland today !!!” one person wrote.
And another said, “Amazing idea, great for a girl’s room.”
