I hope you're not getting bored with all the playroom posts. This is the last one, I promise! There is just so much I wanted to show you, but I'm ready to move onto something else now.
But before we wrap this up, I thought it would be worth explaining a little bit about the toy storage in the playroom.
The vintage Little Tikes strawberry toy box was a leftover from my childhood. (Made when Strawberry Shortcake was popular, I guess.) That stuff is indestructible!
It holds a surprising amount of toys (especially great for bigger and odd-shaped items) although Elise often prefers to empty it and sit inside.
I took an unused TV stand from our basement and tucked some pink plastic bins from Target inside. These bins are working out really well; they are very sturdy and have lids to keep little pieces contained.
The red vintage suitcase was something I've had for years and I've used it to store everything from videotapes to blankets. Right now it's empty, but it's a nice shot of color and gives us room for expansion.
I took this oversized wire tray I found at an antique mall and wasn't really sure what I would use it for. But I needed someplace to put Elise's puzzles, and the tray volunteered for the job. It holds about six or eight puzzles horizontally (only about half is shown in the photo above) and slides neatly underneath the couch.
