One of the best ways to organize a space is to containerize! Not only does it seem to expand the available space (no way could I fit all those toys and books onto that shelf without those bins), but it looks nice too.
After seeing some very expensive, but similar bins in the latest Parents magazine, I decided to do it myself! I found these unfinished wood bins at Joann’s for about $8.00 a piece after using a coupon. I first sanded them down with some fine sand paper and then applied stain we had left over from refinishing our table. I taped a section off and applied chalkboard paint for a fun label and we piled Jayna’s goods in!
And since I am continually accruing late fees at the library, I thought it’d be a good idea to jot a little note as to when the books are due! Hopefully this will help me remember to take them back on time!
