Step 4: Screen

The screen comes standard to fit onto a window so it needs to be cut down to fit our smaller cubes. The good thing is that it already comes with an adhesive on one side so make sure to take advantage of that! Once you have the right width and the desired amount of wrinkles for the length, stick the adhesive side to the inside edge of one side. Apply adhesive onto one end of both magnets and stick one onto the middle of the last fold and the other to the middle of the opposite internal wall. Make sure the screen is straight then allow to dry completely before using. 

To keep the screen open, a clip or another magnet can be used. The magnet would be glued to the same fold that is glued to the box. Make sure the magnets are strong enough to fold the folds together. 
Resize to fit milk crate, utilize pocket hole joinery instead of brackets, fabric backing on lighted units. Love the paper binds, love the diagonal.
This is a really creative idea! It is very artsy-fartsy and fancy and is fit for an art gallery. I have created a few of these storage boxes and put up a chiffon cloth as the screens which are translucent so guests can only catch a glimpse of what is inside. I love the dramatic effect of the lights but have not bought any lighting sets yet. We have tried it vertically but are not quite confident about the diagonal arrangement. We will improve on it soon!
