more lego storage

We've had a good old sell up of T's toys in the last few months. He's traded his wooden fire station and truck and all of his tonka and fisher price toys all for the love of lego. We did buy a lego storage head ( $15 on trade me- thank you!) but it's starting to get a bit full and T sometimes finds it difficult to find the piece he's after. Since I know this is something that he'll be keen on for the next few years, we were in need of some more storage.

Our solution was to put wheels on the bottom of an old drawer. After a sand we painted it using left over wall paint and blackboard paint for the front. The wheels came off our old bed base. The drawer is one from the kitchen of our old house. We kept the drawers when we demolished it a few years ago ( hoarders much?!). I lined the base of it with some Ninja Turtle book cover we had left over.

We all love it. It fits neatly under the wooden tea trolley that he uses to display his 'creations' and there's more than enough room for lego to be added to his collection.

Sorry about the night time photos- it was whisked away and 'labelled' before I could get any today!
