Leather + Stripe Storage Bin (Leather Couch Chronicles #1)

DIY Storage.jpg

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite DIY storage ideas. I did this for Brit + Co. and for my office - a leather and striped slouchy storage bin. I don't know about you, but I am knee deep in spring cleaning right now. I am currently trying to reorganize my office. This, my friends, is no easy task. I've got DIY supplies coming out my ears as you probably could have imagined. So when I came up with this leather + striped bin, I was practically jumping up an down. But there is a little back story on this. 

DIY Storage Idea

So Vintage Revivals (love her btw and definitely recommend following her) totally inspired me to buy a couch for the leather. I got this couch at Goodwill for $25. Considering how much leather there is on a couch and how much leather costs, that's a steal in my book. 

DIY Storage Solution

So I stripped off all of the leather, and my head is spinning right now with all of the projects I am thinking of making! So I'm going to call this little series of DIYs the "Leather Couch Chronicles." Stay tuned to the blog to see what I have in store for you. Here are all of the posts for the Leather Couch Chronicles.
