Items used for the project and favorite part of the storage solution:
I thought your readers would be interested in seeing my solution because it's an inexpensive way to add style to basic storage.

I bought a basic white IKEA Malm dresser for under $150. Then used glue to apply leftover grasscloth wallpaper (originally purchased at Lowe's for less than $30 a roll) to the drawer fronts. Next I applied grosgrain ribbon from Joann's to the edges, creating a frame. This was the trickiest part since I had to cut fairly exact 45 degree angles for all the corners. Lastly, I drilled holes and inserted hardware from Anthropologie that I bought on sale for less than $3 each.

Voila! A cheerful custom storage solution for baby's clothes without a hefty pricetag.

What's your best storage tip for families with children?:
Get your kids to clean up after themselves!

Thanks for your entry, Julia!
