Those are really easy to make. You just buy a shoe rack and plastic bins from like the dollar store

We bought the expedit shelf at ikea for only 100$ and it's huge. Then I just put baskets in it.

heh i didnt even know that shoe racks existed lol
after a google search they are pretty much the same thing arent they?



the whole...finding things at the dollar store puts me out though.
not gonna lie. not too excited about going from store to store when i cant find what i need.

Make one. I did.



I bought online a used armemoire for about 50.00 bucks, sanded it down and the kids painted it with hand prints and flowers their names etc....



I added some extra shelves inside the two doors. We pout some small buckets in there for some stuff.
The side of the armemoire has hooks for their coats house coats etc....
One drawer is for board games, the other is for puzzles. We took all the puzzles out of the boxs cut the pic off the fron, we put the puzzle pieces in ziplock babbies and 3 hole punched them, then put them in a big oversized binder, with the pic from the box attached to the front, so they know what puzzle it is,



etc.......it was fun easy and cheap to do. lol oh the otherside of the armoire has chalkboard paint on it, and so do the doors.

Was just talking about this in a thread yesterday,
ikea has these, wooden shelving, comes in alot of different sizes, and you can pick from a variety of plastic/color bins, to wooden drawers, to baskets.
This isn't ours, but we have about 4 sets of them, using mostly white baskets/drawers to manage toys, clothes and shoes in their respective rooms.

You can leave as many 'cubes' open or filled with whatever storage space you want.

We bought this in black and just put it in the kids play room. We also have this in our living room for toys with nicer looking baskets.
