I think I saw this on Captain Kangagroo once...
Seriously, you probably would pay at least 5$ for this at IKEA.
You can make it for $3 in parts and 1/2 hour in labor...sorry, my time sells for way more than that.
Nicer looking than a shoe box, but if it lives in a closet, out of sight, who cares?

i made something just like this (or tried to) for a temporary underwear storage box, only i spray painted it and decoupaged magazine photos instead. mine was not as tech-savvy as yours is (i punched holes in the side and tried to thread twist-ties to make a 'hinge', whereas you used screws). this little tutorial will definitely help me in the future!

OH my and I just put a few of my good shoe boxes in the recycle area of our garage. I didn't squash them so I hope hubby didn't either. I love this! Thanks BadBadDivy!

I covered a heavy cardboard file box I got at Office Depot (the white ones printed with their logo) with "brushed aluminum" paper I got at Target a few months ago and after a couple of weeks the paper peeled up and refused to stick to the box any more. (It did stick to an old wooden cabinet used for tool storage.) I haven't tried spray adhesive yet; at $12 a can, it might not be worth it. So, word to the wise: there is a possibility that some adhesives might not get along well with certain paper finishes. :o/

Very cool... I think you'd pay $10/box for something like this at IKEA or Target.
