Hi, my sweet friends!!
How many of you love repurposed stuff at home? I do. It’s not just that I like to bring back to life old things, it’s also a must in a crazy home like mine! I have a love/hate relationship with organizing… I mean, I love when everything is in its place (which doesn’t happen too often), not having to jump over pillows on the floor, being able to close a door without destroying a fort, vacuuming the floor and not worrying about swallowing thousands of little Lego pieces… and at the same time I enjoy having the girls around.
I think that when the girls grow up it will be different so I choose now to let them be free and happy, and I just have to find ways to create order inside the disorder. But, having all those tiny little Lego things scattered over the living room floor wasn’t helping me too much to keep my plan…
Then, one day I was driving and saw this old hockey game tray. I stopped the car and took it home with me, I didn’t know what I was going to do with it but it was free!
And some days after the idea stroke me, I could make a multi-purpose tray for the girls. It had the perfect size to use with the Legos; they could be playing on the living room table and when we needed the table it would be easy to have it clear and empty.
When empty, it could be a big chalkboard to write or draw! I did it using the DIY version of chalk paint.
And this is how my free find saved my life!!
I would love to know how you deal with your kids’ toys.
