HomeLife and the photo I found on
Pinterest that I shared with my dad
I showed my dad the photo of "The Zoo," a toy organization idea I came across on Pinterest (see right). It was pinned from the site Organizing Homelife, a great site that I was more than excited to find! Not only would it be the perfect solution to our stuffed animal takeover, it was really cute! I showed it to the girls who immediately loved it. I told them they had so many Disney stuffed animals we should call it the "Emporium" (after my favorite shop in the Magic Kingdom). I was out voted two to one, and we now refer to it as "The Zoo." My girls, especially Hayley, love animals, so it is very fitting for them and no surprise they would keep the name as we saw it on Pinterest.
My dad is pretty talented in the carpentry area. He has done many amazing projects for us from putting up crown molding and chair rail to building our TV cabinet and bookshelves for the family room. After much time spent looking for enough purple bungee cords at all our local hardware and department stores to complete the project, here is our Zoo, the perfect storage solution for our stuffed Disney souvenirs:
|See what I meant earlier about having way too many stuffed animals? I hate to even|
admit this, but this isn't even all of them!
My dad came up with the plan on his own from the photo I shared with him, since we could not find directions anywhere to actually build it. He did an amazing job designing and building this, and the kids just love it! This is the perfect solution for storing our Disney stuffed animals! Thanks, Dad! By the way, the Disney Store is having a Summer Snuggles Save on Cuddly Plush Sale in case you are looking to expand your Disney plush collection (I will be using all my will power to try and avoid this sale!).
