Cleaning up toys can be a beastly task!Â I wanted to create a storage system in our playroom that would make clean up a breeze.Â Â The key to this strategy is that each bin is clearly labeled with a PHOTO and NAME.
The photo labels are laminated and adhered to each bin with Velcro.Â I adapted a card template fromÂ HERE!Â I’m disappointed that the velcro isn’t sturdy enough and the kiddos pull it off— so I need a new plan for this?Â Ideas?
The actual storage unit is ITSO from Target.Â Itso is terrific because it’s durable and adaptable… but way over-priced.
Inspiration for project: HERE– she has the most ingenious organizing ideas!
This has been my pet project for the last couple of months. I wanted to make an unforgettable gift from Santa… and here it is!! I gave my scetch to a super creative carpenter and then Mason and I painted and decorated. What I love most about our brand new kitchen is that it is made from *almost* 100% recycled products! The little knobs on the stove are real knobs from an old maytag. The spay nozzle and faucets are oldies but goodies. Even the inside of the oven is a re-used wire rack.
Inspiration Kiddee Kitchens:
Family Fun’s Version Ultra simple and super cute. You could put this together in a day! This is where I got the idea for using stainless steel bowl for the sink… you’ll notice ours has double sinks… this was my carpenters idea!
Cardboard Kitchen This design caught my eye too… I think she may even sell them in her etsy store! Talk about creativity!
Entertainment Center Kitchen This mini-recycled masterpiece was probably my biggest source of inspiration!
I wish I could sew like this! Quite possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
Sweet girly kitchen Love how whimsical and girly this play set is. Isn’t the clock adorable? Got my idea for curtains here! I’m so pathetic when it comes to using a needle and thread I actually used stitch glue to make the curtains… hehehe…
