This is a long overdue post about one of the projects seen in Little Pilot's nursery update.
We picked up this Coca-Cola crate quite a few years back at a yard sale. I initially used it in my kitchen to house spices, but it was hidden away in a cupboard. I thought it would be much more fun to have it out in the open and it worked perfectly for small toy storage. Currently, it has Little Pilot's blocks in it, but I think it could hold any kind of little toys (Legos, dinky cars, etc.). This was also a super easy project in that we only had to screw on four casters to the bottom. It now glides really well and Little Pilot even takes it for a spin around the house sometimes :). Plus, there's no worry of those metal corners scratching the floors (Nalle does that a plenty already).
Here you can see more of the details. Aren't vintage things so much more fun than new?
This project was so easy peasy that even one year-old, Little Pilot, was able to help, sort of :). This photo was from last year. Look at how small he was!
This final picture is from Little Pilot's nursery last year. You can see that the crate fits perfectly under his change table. This room is actually in flux right now as Little Pilot and Co-pilot have started to share a room. We still have to change this room from a nursery to a shared room. Hopefully, I will be able to get to that project soon!
