A Pretty Storage Solution

My youngest munchkin loves books and  has an over abundance of them. I was starting to run out of drawers to put them in. While in Home Goods this weekend I came across this pretty wicker storage basket and knew it would be perfect to house all her books. ( I really like the way it looks behind the chair too)
Love the leather handles.

It's a great size and there is still room for more. Not bad for $30.
While I was organizing her books she was making sure Toby was comfortable! I couldn't resist snapping this pic of him. She loves him to pieces!!
                        Have a great week!

Hi Martina,

That is one clever idea. I bet your munchkin loves it too.

Toby sure does look adorable.

Good idea! That's a great way to corral a few things out of sight but still have them close by! When my kids were younger, we had bins of toys under the skirted sofas in the den. And, your basket is a beautiful decorative accessory too!Sounds like a win-win to me.

Very good idea Martina. When my boys were small, I had a huge tall wicker trunk in the family room....that is where I stored all their toys, and it was great to just throw them back in at the end of the day.

The thing about that great basket is it can be used for many other purposes, once it's no longer needed for books. Super solution.

Great solution for the books.I did that when my daughter was little.I also had baskets I used for her toys too.When she was not playing with them I liked them to be put away and tidy.
