Fun find...a twist on toy bins

Pottery Barn has darling steel buckets to store toys in...and they are $18 each!  I wanted to find storage bins to add a little color to my IKEA toy organizer but didn't want to spend much.  So I went on the hunt and...

Came home with 12" flower planters from Walmart for $5 each! 

They added color and also hold lots of toys!  I love the IKEA baskets but some of my boys' toys are heavy and were breaking through the we put the heavy stuff in the planters and they hold up great!

Sometimes it takes a little thinking outside the box to come up with a great solution!  If you're in the market for toy storage, they have them in all different colors!  Just head to the garden section :)
