If you've been following along, you know that one of my goals for 2013 is to get the house "more" organized. With four kids, I know I'm not going to overhaul my home, but each month I'm tackling a small organizational project. In fact, I did a whole series of organizational ideas to help us all get more organized.
I've found with my four boys that the hardest thing is finding storage solutions that are practical, easy to use, and contribute to the decor of the house. I don't want my home to only be filled with plastic bins (yes, we have those) and huge tubs (check and double check). Sometimes, though, all it takes is a great chest of drawers to help you get a room more organized.
Let's take this nightstand turned Lego table from Kids Play Ideas. This will be one of my projects for this Spring. The little Legos are starting to take over and the boys need somewhere safe to keep their creations!
I also love how The Frugal Homemaker uses a chest of drawers in her dining room as a separate buffet. (In fact, I'm pretty much in love with everything she does and will be coveting her DIY painted curtains until I finally break down and make some of my own!!) Since our china cabinet is currently home to all the extra craft supplies, I could really use some extra storage in that room for linens and holiday dishes.
You can bet that I'll be on the look-out for great deals on chests of drawers for just about every room in the house. Not only do they hold a lot of stuff and keep it organized, they also have the added benefit of hiding away all those batman toys, blocks, linens, DVDs, or other items that you don't want to see every moment!
