Organizing Kids Toys with IKEA Shelves

i realize i've spent quite a bit of time talking about ikea for the past couple days. i kind of love that store. the reason we drove 30 minutes to go shopping was to buy a shelf for the boys room. see that picture above? the before picture? it makes me twitch. this was what their room looked like...clean. such a disorganized pile of stuff. seriously, i'm cringing. it was hard to find a piece of furniture to fit this space, but thanks to the ikea expedit series i found the perfect shelf!
and this is what it looks like "after" the new shelf was put together by michael tonight. i'm so excited about the new look for their room. notice this picture only shows you one corner of their room...i still have some work ahead of me in the closet. and don't even get me started on ella's room. that will have to wait until she is back in school so i can bring in the bulldozer. i love organizing though, and was very excited to finally start organizing the boys' toys!

organizing the kids things is so gratifying- you see immediate results. the bad thing is when the kids see what you did, and want to play with all their stuff! ha.
