Molly's toys were starting to take over her room (and what felt like the rest of the house). N was working from home today so I was able to head up to IKEA during Molly's nap and pick up the shelving/storage I had my eye on. I purchased the EXPEDIT shelving unit along with some BRANĂ„S wicker baskets. I also picked up some cloth STRIKT boxes, but when I got home I realized I grabbed the smaller 7" high ones and not the larger 12" high ones that I had intended to purchase. It's just as well as I prefer the KUSINER mesh one I had picked up as a one off. I was initially going to do a box in each cubby hole, but I think I am going to leave two empty for the larger toys.



Ahhhh... MUCH better!

I also picked up a turquoise mesh hanging storage for her stuffed animals. It's currently sitting in the cubby next to her castle. However, I'm not exactly sure where to put that. For now her stuffed animals will stay gathered in the striped collapsable bag you see next to her bed. Hey, at least they are gathered!

The shelving units came with brackets and can be stacked on top of one another. I'm thinking long term solution (when she moves up to a real bed) will be to put them on top of each other in the corner where the glider currently resides and brace them to the wall. For now, this will work. Although I am a little bummed how much of her beach is now blocked.
