unique storage solution for baby books
January 18, 2011
I found this old wine rack at Goodwill several months ago and have been keeping it my garage until I could figure out what to do with it.
We recently rearranged the furniture in our downstairs living space by getting rid of an oversized couch and moving a large bookshelf against a wall. The result? A playroom.
I moved a large number of Juliet's books to the aforementioned bookshelf and placed them up high (so as to be out of reach of a soon-to-be-getting-into-everything baby's hands), but wanted a baby-friendly solution for the equally large number of baby board books that I will soon be unpacking and bringing downstairs.
The little light went on in my sleep-deprived brain and voila! Out came the wine rack and in went the books. What do you think? I kind of like it. Lots of little nooks for books and toys. Now I just need to paint it something a little more appealing.
Of course, Lucia won't be sitting, crawling, or handling books for several more months (she's just now 3 months old), so I thought maybe it could be used for another organizational nightmare in our home...
Anyone else have a hard time getting your kid to put her shoes where they belong? I'm hoping this will help with that and also with finding the same shoe for both feet when we need to run out the door quickly.
If it does work, I'll be looking for another old wine rack for the baby books. Goodwill, here I come!
