Because our little one was learning to walk and because it was huge and ugly we got rid of our old coffee table. We went without for a couple of years. This year though I wanted something back in. You need a place for chip and dip during football games and to put your toes up while watching T.V.
Hubby brought in an old trunk we had in the garage. It ain't pertty to some but around here, beat up and bruised is all good with our kids and dogs.
Perfectly stores loads of her toys and I keep the latch done which she can't undo. I don't want her messing with the lid without me. Rotating toys is one of the genius ideas I read about many years ago. Kids don't play with what is right in front of them but bring out a toy they haven't seen in a while and it is like new. She has other things out all the time but loves to get in the trunk.
This is part of my goal of organization and storage ideas I posted about here.
