This Turned Out Good

I have shared how much I love the new IKEA that just opened in Denver.  We bought these wood boxes to help organize my school and I let the children paint them for me.  They liked putting the little foam stickies on that I picked up at Hobby Lobby too.  The children loved the project and we had several extra boxes left over. So they painted one for themselves and are using them in their closets to keep their personal things organized.  
That’s what I call a Good Thing...inexpensive boxes; fun project for the children; organization! 


  1. What a wonderful idea!!

    I love IKEA too. We always visited them no matter what State or country we have been living in! IKEA is HUGE is the UK and everywhere. Have you ever tried their meatballs? We would go there 'just' for lunch sometimes! I ended up buying their cookbook because we have been so addicted.

  2. I love IKEA too :) Bummer ours is pretty far so we don't get to go too often and always feel like we have to take everyone with- which reduces the cargo room!!! We've had some pretty crazy trips home when we bought a little too much!

    Your kids did a great job on these boxes...cute!! They look like they were working very hard. Blessings, Jennifer

  3. We love IKEA too. Ours is a couple hrs away so I don't get there as often as I would like to. But oh, my... when I do... happy me. This looks like a fun project. Good job mommy!

  4. thanks for the heads up - looks great! as soon as our temperatures drop I will be re-arranging our garage to add some laundry room space - I need some good storage space for shoes, sport equip... I may have to look into these boxes! sounds like a fun project for the kids too! Thanks!

  5. They look great! I've been wanting to go to the IKEA in Denver, as well, but just haven't had the chance yet.
