So it was sort of an ironic joke with HGTV.com contacted me for ideas for organizing toys.
Remember this post.
BUT I remembered I did have the old crates below.
When I saw these old crates I loved the colors and feel..I bought them to use for centerpieces or utensils/organization for Henry’s birthday party but they didn’t really work..but then I had an idea, add casters!
We simply added $1 casters from HomeDepot..so easy! And honestly, this is about as complex as the DIY gets around our house but we did it!
And now we have toy storage, particulary for legos… the sectioned crate works great for sorting (not that I sorted them;) and as a safe keeping place for lego art!
This is a big issue at our house..the need for a safe keeping zone for lego creations…DO NOT TOUCH!;; Big brother really likes that sign and can use the crate as a diorama for creating and slide it under the bed for safekeeping…It’s like a little lego table within a box…no lifting and risking it breaking a part. I don’t about your house but that can cause big drama around here.
Drew playing legos!
Baby Henry has a cart too…No there are no sharp edges, I checked!
Slides right under the bed..they haven’t realized they can race them yet..I am sure that is coming!;;
Thanks for looking! Remember sometimes its ok to think INSIDE the box! Many containers that were originally meant for other things can be repurposed for unique toy storage!
What unique ways have you discovered for storing toys?? Of course in my opinion nothing beats a BIG BASKET, more on the perfect basket later.
But for now, tell me about YOUR TOY STORAGE IDEAS?
