Kiddie Storage

So, we had this.... the family room.

Not good.  Can we say "eyesore"?

I'm absolutely fine with my kid's toys being around the house, because, well, that's what you sign up for when you have children.

But, this chaos?  This had to end.

I looked, and looked, and looked for a furniture piece and just couldn't find something I liked.  It's a good thing Miss "picky with a shade of vague" met Mr. "I can decipher what you want and then build it."

And with the help of friend, it's good guy time.  

Of course, little man went out to "help", too.

I sanded and sanded, and filled holes and painted.

Then sanded some edges, because y'all know I like that sort of thing.

I found some 3Sprouts bins that I really, really loved.  They disguise the toy mess.

And, we're done!  

I love the craftsman style of the piece, how large it is to accommodate larger bins, and how it fits into the adult room, but still has the kid friendly feel.
