We have quite a smattering of furniture from IKEA around our house. With kids, it’s cheap and sturdy and decorative enough that we have made good use of it.
Recently, my wife and I decided that the storage we had for kids toys in the upper level of our house wasn’t working. It consisted of a big bin at the end of the hallway. While it worked when my wife first put it there, it quickly wore out its welcome.
We aren’t a huge fan of putting kids toys all around their room but we want some toys
upstairs as we spend enough time up there to warrant some toys for both kids. In other words, we like the hallway idea, just not the way it was.
