Alison sent us an email: I love your site and advice, and I'm hoping you or your readers can help me. I'm desperately looking for some sort of toy chest or storage for my daughter's toys in our living room. Right now we have big baskets which are overflowing and not quite doing the trick. We would like a chest of some kind that can easily hide her toys which tend to end up all over the place...

Pottery Barn Kids used to offer a great toy chest, but after much inquiries I've found out that they discontinued it (see picture above). Does anyone know where I can find something similar? It doesn't have need to have a chalkboard, but we would like something in a wood finish so that it would match the rest of our furniture. Also, we'd like to not spend a fortune too - so if anyone knows how to make something, we're open to that too.

I really appreciate any advice you can offer.

Please share any sources or suggestions with Alison in the comments below...thanks!
