Let's start with what I don't love.
Junk on my stairs

lookin' like a fool with the
junk on my stairs.
It's pretty much always there.
And who's fault is it?
Mine of course.
But there is always something that needs to go up and if I made a separate trip for every little thing, well, I'd probably be in a lot better shape.
OK, not the point. The point is, it sits on the stairs until I walk up there without a full load of Logan . Craft supplies, books, shoes, socks...
Oy the socks.
I live with two boys who just love to take their socks off all over the house. They're everywhere!
Luckily they are super easy to collect and put on the stairs.
Hence my problem.
Alright, let's move on to something I love. Cardboard boxes. They have so much potential I think, don't you? And with a baby in diapers and a Costco nearby we seem to have a never ending supply.
I could make this and actually use it!
Not that I don't use all of my crafty creations.
I took an old diaper box and used her instructions to make this shape.
It's a little confusing just to read how to do it on her blog, but if you grab a cardboard box and start following along, it works out fine.
Then I put it on my stairs!
Then I decorated it! Duh.
I wish that I just had the fabric on hand so that this project was free, but I didn't. I bought some at Joann's.
And then I put it on my stairs!
Excellent! No more piles of stuff.
Until my box gets full.
I kid I kid. I'll take it upstairs when the box gets full. Of course.
