Wilde Does Stuff: Diaper Box Storage

Image
Before I go into this one, I should confess two things. First off? This is really similar to my last tutorial. I like boxes and organizers. A LOT. Second?

I will, however, be re-covering the front portion with duct tape just as soon as I get off my lazy butt and do it.Get an empty diaper or wipe box.
