Child's Name and Age: Sylvie, 2 years old
Location: South River, New Jersey
Items used for the project and favorite part of the storage solution:
We live in a tiny apartment and I am always struggling with how to store all of our stuff and still keep our home cozy and relaxing. Once Sylvie hit the toddler stage I knew I needed to re-think her room but also knew we couldn't afford the things I really wanted, like a big activity table with drawers or a great vintage credenza to hold her stuff. I watched Craigslist for months but never found anything just right. While shopping for something else we stumbled upon the Ikea Lack side tables for $12.99 each.
Sylvie's favorite part is the big neighborhood and train set on the table top, and I love having dedicated storage for all of her stuff.
Best storage tip for families with children:
Give every item a home. Clean up is so easy when things have a designated spot to return to. Sylvie isn't always thrilled when it's time to clean up but she does know where everything belongs.
Thanks for entering, Kacey!
