Nursery: Storage Container Options

I've been having SO much fun planning the nursery. Question for parents... are you as excited to do up the second baby's room?? I sure hope so, coz I'm really really enjoying this part.

So let's talk containers shall we? I've been looking around for containers to fill up a few nooks & crannies - for toys, laundry etc., that would also double up as accent pieces. Here are a few of my faves so far...

storage containters
A. Galvanized Wash Tub (Main St. Supply). This site is great, they have a bunch of different shapes and sizes available.

B. Storage Bushel (Hable Construction). LOVE these things and the storage boxes but unfortunately way over my budget. You too? I spotted this awesome no-sew DIY Storage Box Tutorial.

C. Round Carry Basket (Steele Canvas Basket Co.). Also avail with casters. I've been drooling over these for a while now and I finally found an excuse to buy one :) I'll be using it for the little one's dirty clothes.

D. Peddler's Design Round Potato Basket (Uptown Country). Love the look of these potato, egg, clamming wire baskets. Whatever you call them, I love 'em! Perfect for storing/organizing toys, books and other small items.

E. How awesome is this Blue one (Lehman's)??? Also love the vintage options but I'm not sure about safety issues when it comes to chipping paint... Love this yellow one and this awesome vintage clamming basket,

The Land of Nod is another source for other affordable storage options.

All beautiful!

Try to pick up one that your child can crawl into.I have a one-year-old who loves to play with laundry and a basket to fill up with every little thing he collects from around the house.

This is such a great round up of lovely containers and really interesting resources. And for the most part, pretty good prices. Thanks for sharing design that's actually within reach! I took the liberty of reposting.
