This 4 foot high shelf used to hold my toys when my favorites were the Fisher Price house and barn. [Now that same house and barn are in the “vintage” category on Ebay!]
Obviously it didn’t stay a toy shelf. It held innumerable stuff before it was relegated to the basement at my house. There it held paint cans, flower pots, a spare key, and various other tools. It also got quite dingy and dirty, and generally all around icky.
Doesn’t it look much better with a new coat of “almond” paint? The knot holes and rust marks are no longer visible.
Lastly, but most importantly, it is filled up with my children’s toys, including their generation’s Fisher Price barn and house. The big blue tote is put away and there is more floor showing.
It’s a good thing. 😉
