Todays post is a little unusual in that you get a glimpse of bits of my living room, but not only that but on how I organize things daily in the room. I am joining in on a link up with Becky an friends for organizing so this is what I wll be showcasing for you today.
First off, the toy area/bookshelf/storage:
We have a white four stacker plastic shelving (given to us) that we use for bigger toys (trucks, toys that sound, etc). Then beside this is the black bookshelf (from Target last fall for $25 on back to school sales) which houses picture frames, candles, coasters and look- bins!
The black and gray bins (bought at Big Lots last fall for $8 for a pack of 6) houses toys. Sometimes the bins are organized by dishes and play food, cars, legos, etc but not at the moment. On the floor next to the bookshelf there is a bin of wooden stackable blocks andf cars that are too big to shelve.
The top shelf contains a grey bin for electronic pieces, wires and batteries (on your left) and the bin on your right contains photos and photo albums that are small enough t fit of course. If there are no photos in frames or scrapbooks they go in here. Finally on the top of the bookcase are dvd cases that house all of our dvds at the moment.
The huge case contains adult dvds, an the slimmer case contains children’s dvds.
Finally, I thought I would show you our shoe tote basket under our table by the door, because it is so pretty and the centerpiece for how we would like to redecorate our living room (blue, whites and canary yellow). I scooped this lovely basket for $20 at TJ Maxx a few months back and I just love how it has held up and hid the shoes, while looking great for décor purposes.
That is all I have to show you for now. When we redo our livng room (new couch, throw pillows, shelves and picture frames painted) I will show you the results. Until thank you for reading.
