July 19 WFMW

I love Works for Me Wednesday!

This is something that millions of other people have probably already figured out but ... We had a serious stuffed animal storage issue going on. The kids have lots of beautiful stuffed toys and they love to play with them so getting rid of them wasn't really an option for me. I had to have something high enough that they couldn't pull them down on there own (I let them pick which ones to keep out for the week). And I didn't have a free corner to hang one of those cool nets that they sell for this very purpose - also they didn't really go with the decor (which is a lovely princess theme that you can't see in this picture). So we took three cup hooks and threaded through about 4 yards of leftover tulle from someone's wedding. It looks a little lopsided in the picture, but it's usually quite pretty. Brenna calls them her animal clouds:) Posted by Picasa

What a good idea! Decorative AND functional.
"Animal Clouds" - Too cute!

Very neat idea! And my daughters room will soon be turned into a princess theme! Very cool!

Brenna loves it. And since I hang pictures pretty low in the kids' rooms, it helps fill in some space at the tops of the walls.

Animal clouds! I love it! Also love that they get to pick their toys to have down for the week.

Nice! If only I had seen this idea before I bought a jumbo toy net from Babies R Us. Your solution is much prettier!

I've posted a WFMW tip as well. Stop by and take a peek. :)

That's exactly what I needed! I've been trying to figure out a way to hang stuffed animals and no luck. And I didn't want to buy that net from the store! :)

We have some pet nets in our little guy's room, it's so nice to keep them all contained ;).

LOL--Shannon, at first I thought you wrote "stuffed animal SHORTAGE." I thought, gosh, they seem to have plenty to me! (Duh.)

Shannon said...

Shortage? No we have PLENTY! :) You just wait til Baby Firth starts accumulating bears and bunnies and froggies and monkeys and on and on and on:) As a matter a fact can I bring you some so you can start getting a feel for it now?:)
