Neccessary Shelving

We needed some storage for the toy/school room...badly. Too many toys and not enough room for school! I browsed for ages online, looking for something that could contain the toys and make them easy to play with AND easy to put away. I finally settled on these great plans at Knock Off Wood. Unfortunately, neither of us had the time for even a quick project and I was out of patience with that room. You can see why...

Luckily, these $15 cheapo shelves from Walmart came to the rescue. This is the day we put them together and loaded them up...they'll look much better when I get a few more matching containers. But for $45 bucks total, it's a decent sized shelving unit and it's pretty sturdy, too.
I wish I'd taken a better picture of it all styled up, but remember the part of this post where I mentioned running low on time...?

Hey Shannon so glad ro read your post. It's been awhile :) The shelves look good and very organized. Now if they's just stay that way right?

Thanks, sweetie! I weeded out a lot of toys (can you believe this is the after picture?!) so they're doing a little better about keeping it put up. Brenna has a paly kitchen in here, too, and Christian has a small shelf with matchbox cars (a lot of them!), but the rest is for school. Now to get that organized...
