See all these toys in this corner?
Of course you can. They're right out in the open.
This is what remains of the toys that are "allowed" to be out of the bedrooms. (That sounds way harsher than I mean it....they spend nearly all their time playing in their rooms. We don't have a toy room, and I really don't want my living room to be a living room/toy room. So there are a few random blocks, Mr. Potato Head and his family, a block train and some wayward trucks piled up next to the sofa.)
The mussieness of it is my "problem."
The solution. Part one:
I found these hat boxes on major clearance. But, they're the wrong color. Or pattern. Or something. I like that they're hat boxes, but I don't like that they're floral. Maybe one floral one would be nice, but not all.
So, as the day progresses, I hope to make them a little different.
I'll put up some pictures when they're all done.
