Am showing the before and after pictures. I bought theses cubes on coasters about 10 years or so ago. My boys played with them and put their wrestlers in them. Sat on them,played on them and now the youngest is 13 and no more plying with wrestlers . I decided I was going to refurbish them and so this is my first big project in several years.i whipped out my sewing machine,oiled her attempted to adjust tensions and she is still having some troubles but I worked with it. My if finished products and I even made a small pillow with left overs. image-2295589722.jpg image-2295589722.jpg image-2461280006.jpg image-1428433888.jpg image-114789420.jpg.

I can flip the lids over and place my coffee on it like a table.

Ok, first, I NEED those things. Our space is small, and things like that that serve a dual purpose are exactly what I need.

Second, I LOVE them. So cute!

I had picked those up at Target years ago. 1 always worried that they would not hold up to the use and abuse of 3 boys.I wanted to use them again but wanted them to fit in with my colors now. I love the fact I can roll them and not have to pick them up. And store blankets some movies and a wii system in them safely tucked away. I have looked at different stores including Walmart to find some cubes but could not find what I wanted without spending a lot of money. These cost me $7.50 a piece to refurbish them

Great job on your project it definitely hid any years of kid fun, plus being able to dust off the sewing machine now that's courage. My sewing machine has been hidden for years like yours because my skills are so amateur. Sewing a straight line is a struggle...Fun to see what others can accomplish gives me hope.

Aren't those kind of projects SO satisfying? When I do something like that, I find myself making up excuses to walk into the room where the project is just so I can admire it! Good for you! They turned out super cute.

Thank you all!! I have been flipping the lids over and set my coffee on it when I relax in the evening. I think this is so much more convenient.

Now I am not sure what my next project will be. I cut some molding for my vanity in the bathroom and my kitchen counter and now those are finished and put on.

I think I will work on some yard clean up to get garden ready for spring and clean up some of natures mess in my flower beds. I really want to make some of those throw blankets with the flannel like stooph14 has made.

My DH yesterday was complaining about our well loved ottoman that the kids use and abuse, I was able to tell him there was some hope for it because of what you shared. Thx so much!
