To refresh your memory here's the console I'm talking about (the same one we trash-picked right around this time last year):
All cleared out:
I just used two baskets I already had on hand to put in the cabinets but in reality I will probably get something that fits the space better and is much softer. I plan to put toys on one side (as portrayed by the only baby toy I have right now) and diapers on the other.
The two drawers hold only decor-related items that are now easily to get to and easy to swap out whenever the mood strikes.
The bottom drawer already had this little handy organizer so a bunch of smaller breakable items are now neatly tucked away. The best part? I get to cross one thing off the ol' To-Do list. Woot. Now hopefully our little girl takes a long time to figure out how to open a big drawer...
