Do you have a love, hate relationship with legos? Because I do. I am tired of stepping on them, worrying the baby will swallow them and seeing them slowly take over every room in my house. But, they’re educational and my child is sure to be a famous engineer as a result of playing with them.
My oldest has his own room. We also have a playroom. Still, somehow, those darn things inevitably wind up migrating to the office, the living room, the KITCHEN. They needed a place to go and they needed it fast. And it had to be pretty, ’cause Momma likes pretty things!
I found this beauty in the middle of nowhere. Literally. Like this store was on the corner of a cornfield and another cornfield. Kid you not. I paid $35, which was too much, especially since it didn’t even have a back. But she had perfect lines and I really liked her faux-four top drawers.
Pretend I am skinny and have a nice tan, Mkay?
I definitely think she was worth it, don’t you?
I took out the bottom four drawers and replaced them with water hyacinth baskets, you know, for legos. Because that just makes sense….right??
I do not understand furniture varnish. Why do they put that awful stuff on top of beautiful wood? Look what was hiding under there!
Finding baskets for the perfect fit was tricky but I persevered. And my efforts paid off, no?
A little distressing to keep things interesting….
And she’s ready for work!
Would you ever guess there were a billion legos in this Pottery Barn style storage unit?
