A Gift from Momma & Daddy

I just realized that I never posted pictures of our gift to Carli for her birthday. Carli spends most of her time in the living room with me during the day. She plays, and I work, or attempt to work. So, in an attempt to organize toys and have a place for things, we came up with this idea.

Keith built her two toy boxes with awesome hinges that won't slam down. And then in the middle she has three cubbies. On the top of the middle cubbie, he built a snack tray so that she could put her sippy cup and snack bowls on top of the cubbie.


We had the grand idea of using magnetic paint on the front of the toy chest. It kind of works. It recommended doing 3 light coats, I think we did like 6! Grammy made her some magnets that stick really well and then she found some BIG letters that have extra magnets on them that work as well.
Carli loves them - and I do too! It makes clean up easy and all her toys have a place now. Please, no new toys for Christmas! :)
A great big, huge thank you to Aunt Carolyn who helped us out by making the cushions that went on top of the toy storage. They turned out great!
Next we need to find new curtains with tie backs and recover our couches...but that's another story for another day!
