Before children I said I would be strict on toys and I am bloody proud of how strict I am still managing to be 2.5 years on. I buy carefully, mainly I only buy at birthdays and Christmas and the odd item between. I use my local charity shops a lot, small businesses and a small toy shop in my local town for schleich animals. However, there are still a fair number of toys and I wanted one place to house them downstairs- especially his plethoras of trucks.
The beauty of this is that there are two sizes and therefore prices. I went with the one with the larger depth. I have added baskets from my local flea market and Arlo takes out a basket at a time back to the lounge or keeps it in the conservatory. It then keeps them organised and I am able to tidy quick. The other option would be to add lots of storage boxes. I prefer this Ikea cabinet to any other Ikea toy storage idea purely because you can close those doors and everything is hidden away completely and then it goes back to looking stylish AF. Winning.
I upcycled it with hairpin leg company legs. I went to go for Pretty Pegs but the price put me off. Then I saw some similar to Pretty pegs on Ebay as furniture feet and considered these but stuck with their smallest hairpin legs. These screwed on with the screws the hairpin leg co provided.
