    I think it’s a great idea, but something is bugging me about it. I think the proportions are off? It just seems a little too tall and not wide enough for the space, a little unbalanced over the couch.

    It’s very creative and I like the colors!

    I think that is very clever. I love anything with circles. The upcycling of the gift boxes is totally in keeping with the times.

    Well, I like it. It has great radial symmetry.

    I love those little boxes! I even made a movie about them: http://lloydandlauren.com/2007/04/30/stop-action-week/

    Any little thing that shows your own creative touch makes a home fun, and NO ONE should dis it – especially if they don’t have the balls to own it!

    That’s cool! What it needs is some more stuff in the room to pick up some of those colors.

  11. What a good idea. You could glue little things like small pebbles or coloured dice or contrasting scrunched up paper inside the boxes.

    PS Just ignore anonymous. If they can’t post in their own name, they are truly not worth worrying over.

    Sometimes there are hacks or ideas on this page that I’m not as fond of, but hey! would be a boring world if we all liked the same things.

    Actually, it IS quite ugly.

    Anonymous, that’s just plain mean and unnecessary.
    I think that art is really cool – perfect for a bedroom..
