How We Created Our Toy Storage With These Six Things From Ikea
Toy storage is NO joke in this house. I know I'm not the only mom that struggles with where to put all the things these kids accumulate but seriously where does it all come from?!
I always get asked about our toy storage so I thought I'd put together a quick post linking the exact items we used to keep things organized in at least one area of the house! (No, this is not sponsored or affiliated and neither are the links!)
I love a good ikea hack as much as the next person and well I also just love ikea! Is there even a better place to get storage for your kids and home?
What you'll need:
2 Ikea Trofast Frames (here)
Storage Boxes : (we used)
- 6 Small Ikea Trofast Boxes (here)
- 6 Medium Ikea Trofast Boxes (here)
- 2 Large Ikea Trofast Boxes (here)
14 Trofast Lids (here)
1 Ikea Hemmahos Bench Pad (here)
1 Ikea Lappljung Ruta Cushion Cover (here)
I Ikea Inner Cushion (here)
Contact Paper or Peel and Stick Wall Paper (optional)
The rest basically does itself, get husband/bf/anyone but you to build the Trofast units because us moms have enough stuff to do without building ikea furniture. Line them up with the shortest ends together and insert your bins in whatever order you want them. You can use this picture as reference or can make your own configuration with whatever size bins suit your personal toy storage needs. Place the bench pad on the lowest level with the cushion and create a little reading nooky nook for your littles!
If you want to add a little customization like the marble detail on ours just use contact paper or I'm sure peel and stick wall paper would work the same.
I had left over from our play kitchen so that's what I used and I just ordered it off Amazon.
Thats it, that's all! Enjoy your new storage solution and send me a pic or tag me with your end result! I love seeing how everyone else's come together and how you've made it your own!
