I made this DIY box shortly after we moved into our apartment this summer.
I didn't take pictures before or while I made it (sorry), but I assure you of three things: it was time consuming, it wasn't that hard to do, and it used a lot of freaking glue sticks.
It started off as a cardboard box...a really sturdy cardboard box.
It was the perfect size to fit in my small entertainment stand...and since right after marriage Tyler and I were moving in together and trying to merge all our things together, I suddenly had to accommodate for a ton of video game equipment in my tiny little entertainment stand.
I first glued an interior lining fabric to the inside, so it would be easier to clean dust and such things out. Then I worked from the bottom up gluing the burlap (that was a leftover gunny sack from our wedding) to the exterior of the box. After several hours and a jar of glue sticks, I now have a good way to conceal (or hide, as Tyler puts it) all the video games!
Probably the cheapest storage container we own!
(If you're looking for similar gunny sacks, you can buy them at Atwoods).
