For the longest time, the top bunk of the kids bed had been used as storage, and that was clearly not ideal. We also had a variety of ikea storage solutions - a low billy bookcase and 2 of the shallower stuva shelves... but they were simply not enough! They were also open storage, which meant that any mess was very visible.
1) made use of full height of the wall as much as possible
2) clean and simple look
3) not too deep
And once again, I turned to trusty ol' Ikea for storage solutions. I was deciding between the billy and the besta series and finally decided on the besta because I preferred the flat doors. Also, the extra 10+ cm in depth would allow me to store more toys, and it was wall mountable (which means I can clean under it).
I got 2 of the besta 192cm x 60cm units and 1 38cmx120cm extension, and the besta vara doors. All in white.
The final product and the kids playing with the lego wall.
You can see from the photo that they stick out a bit...
I also made a birdhouse clock using scrapbook paper and the clock mechanism from the $1.90 ikea rusch clock. For now, the clock is mostly a design feature for the kids since I didn't put in any numbers.
Project #2 complete! Books and toys hidden from sight, a new lego wall and white board wall for the kids to play with and space to store more :)
