Whimsical Toy Storage Reveal

i'm back!!! So sorry I completely neglected my awesome blogger friends! please forgive. This summer has been the busiest summer of all my life. So many updates that I have to show you. And also much work in progress. I hope you have all been having a great summer, and now that it's coming to a closing, it's oh so fun to see the leaves changing colors, the cool breeze in the morning and at night. sigh... good ol fall! Well, without much more talking, let me show you how I completed Nolan's toy storage solution. Remember what it used to look like?



Terrible right? And remember how we found the coolest sale ever!!


 
Remember the uplift of this baby?
 
 

Well now here is the end result!

I made sure not to put any legs on the cool divider. Little ones tend to horde things down and under. To avoid bending over cleaning over and over again, problem solved. No legs. This way it's also easy to reach books and whatnot.

Check this awesome file divider! I have been dying for one of these for about a year now, all the ones I found were online $40 or more plus shipping. Fortunately Target never lets me down. I grabbed the last of these, perfect for back to school, only $10 bucks!! Yeehaa!!

Shoe boxes, with gray lids! Target too of course. Perfect for storing little toys, and they're clear so you can see what's inside.

Target dollar section, I got a bunch of these for Nolan's whimsical first birthday party. Perfect to grab and carry around. He puts little things in there, super cute!
