Andy writes, “I wanted to share how we have used some Ikea furniture as toy storage. It’s not really a hack as we haven’t changed anything but it’s more of a way of using a piece of furniture differently.
We wanted some way of storing our kids toys so that they were neat, easily accessible and easy to sort out. I had always liked the look of the Trofast storage range but the size of the units is pretty small. So I decided to use a Pax wardrobe and line it with the plastic buckets instead. I wanted to put 10 buckets in it but due to the placement of door hinges I could only fit eight of them. I don’t have lids on the buckets so that I can fit more in. I made some labels on my computer for the outside of the buckets.”
