Kid’s Room Makeover : Toy Storage Tags

Today I am sharing the final piece to my kiddo’s shared bedroom makeover.  This was a long time coming project but the end result was so worth the wait and effort!

After their much needed cluttered space was calling out to me, I finally got around to doing a huge overhaul to their room.  I’ve since highlighted their organized and painted closet, created shadow boxes to hold their baby onesies and crafted a burlap dress up banner.
I knew we needed some organization to keep all their toys straight but I just didn’t want the typical plastic labels that you can buy along with these cloth storage boxes.  I wanted something helpful but pretty.

. Fabric scraps
. Chalkboard Paint

I love the look of layered things.  Layered paper (you should have seen my wedding invitations, I cut and layered 6 sheets of paper), layered tablecloths, layered fabric.  Just love it.
I first, picked about five or six fabrics and cut out different shapes in each of them as backgrounds to the chipboard.


Using a sponge brush, I then painted an organic rectangular shape onto each chipboard.


Two coats was plenty of coverage.


I then cut narrow strips of fabric to use as ribbons to hold the tags together and to secure to the toy storage boxes.


I love getting pictures of those chubby little baby hands.  I could eat them up.


Now, if I could actually keep the kiddo’s room looking this neat and organized all the time, then I would really have something to share!  What are your toy storage secrets?

  1. So cute! But oh, my goodness – I’m loving the piggy bank!! Would you mind sharing where you found it? I’m trying to find one for our baby (due in July) and this one would look adorable in the room!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! I bought piggy bank at Target in their clearance section three years ago. Then I spray painted it white and painted on the design myself.

  2. These tags are an awesome mashup of fabric and paper. What beautiful results! I am a bit of a paper junkie so I completely love the uniqueness of these tags. lovely.

  3. Mama, you make me look forward to next year, home with the littles. I’m planning to craft and cook a lot! Because I will have all kinds of time, huh?:)))
