The other day I found two white party tubs originally from Potterybarn on Craigslist for $10 for the pair. St. John (the hubs) went and got them for me. I knew there had to be something I could do with these besides what they were intended for..... Afterall, we have lots of aluminum party tubs already. I liked the size (they are pretty small) and the wooden handles.
I have a little one year old (if you are just now reading my blog and haven't seen the pics of little K). She has lots of toys as most kids do.
I am always looking for creative ways to store her toys, as we usually have some in every room (I know, I know...ugh). Soooo......
I, and by that I mean my dad (while I watched K run around the house), just used Gorilla glue and glued 3 wheels (from Home Depot) on the bottom of the tub. Then I applied the K and the bees.
ROLLING TOY TUBS!
Here is the front
Here is the back
The entire project was $20....and I still have enough materials for one more toy tub...stay tuned!!
-You don't have to buy a traditional "toybox".....ANYTHING can be a toybox!
-The party tubs were from craigslist, but you can buy inexpensive tubs at lots of random places. -My mom bought 2 FUN bright turquoise party tubs at Tuesday Morning for $14.99 each.
-I bought the 'K' vinyl decal at Hobby Lobby (they had lime green and hot pink)
-I ordered the set of three small bees decals from Holly on etsy
-The metal wheels are from Home Depot. They are glued with Gorilla glue because it affixes metal to metal.
K was very busy cleaning house while I applied her decals on her new toy tub
