Toy box…
This is something that most of us need right? To pack all the toys away so your childs room is tidy…
Would you Ruther buy one and decorate it or… buy one that’s already decorated?
Personally.. Id Ruther decorate my own.. But hubby is building it.
What would you put on it? How would you decorate your baby/childs one?

Well I chose to paint one from the bare wood section of the local craft store. Down side is it is rather small. But I figure I could use it more as a memory box.

Here is a pic of the toy box.

Oh, I planned on doing that too (buying it from the craft store), but they didn't have ANY decent sized ones. They only had ones smaller than the one you bought. There is an unfinished furniture store here I'm going to check out or I'm going to ask my uncle if he could build us one! (He loves doing that stuff). But your paint job is really pretty!

I bought Benjamin a toy box from Wal-Mart -- it was a box that was in the hardware section - we stained it, varnished it and put letters spelling BEN on it and two character type stencil thingies a plane and a train. It turned out wonderful

We don't have a toy box yet, but I have found one that I plan on getting my daughter. Its already decorated and so darn cute. If DH, my BIL or FIL would like to build her one, we would go that route though.

chanda, is that your nursery? it is so cute! i have a similar crib and was wondering how you keep the short sides of the bumper attached since the sides of the crib are solid wood. i used double-sided velcro but it does not work very well!

for the toybox...my mom and i repainted and decorated my old toybox! i will post a pic when i get home.

Getting the short sides of the bumper to stay put is hard. Right now they're just kind of pushed up against the wood ends of the sleigh bed. So they're not secure at all. But I remove the bumpers once the baby moves from the bassinet to the crib, so really they're more there for just decoration than anything else. Once I remove them, that's when the hard part comes in on trying to maneuver the breathable bumper with the solid wood sides.

This is actually just a pic of the bedding, that blue wall in the back became an accent wall. I think I posted pics of it in the nursery theme thread.

Thanks for the compliment.
