Kid Toy Storage

Using three Ikea Expedit shelves to frame a window in the playroom allows for optimal storage and easy access to the toys.
Purchased three Ikea Expedit shelves (Kallax has now replaced the Expedit series) and used them to frame the window in the playroom. The bins were purchased from Target. The seating bench was made using a MDF board, foam, fabric and a staple gun. I first laid the fabric with the print side down, then the foam and finally the MDF board on top. I tightly pulled the fabric over the board and used the staple gun to secure the fabric. Once complete, I then screwed the bench seat to the Expedit.

      It is actually foam that I purchased from a local foam store. I went in with my dimensions and they cut it down for me.
