As anyone who has kids knows...you have an unbelievable amount of toys. My big dilemma is what to do with all those toys. My house is only a single wide so therefore the little girls' room is very small, only enough room for their beds and dressers. There is not a lot of room left over for toys.
For Christmas, Aaron ordered himself a chainsaw mill. For those of you who are like me, and are clueless as to what that is-- it is a thing that attaches to a chainsaw and allows you to cut trees into lumber of all sizes.
So...since we had a stack of lumber that Aaron had milled sitting on our porch, I asked Aaron's dad if he could make a shelf to put the toys on. He took some boards, worked some magic, and voila!, this is what I got!
The shelf works great and the girls love it! It's a great way for them to be able to actually see what toys they have. And they love to put their toys back on the shelf (well, with prompting anyway).
(Note: yes, I realize the dates are kinda backwards, the log Aaron is milling in the picture is not the one that was used for the shelf)
