Ikea Love | Hyllis Shelving Unit

Oh Happy Monday!  
This is the last week of summer for this house!  Seven more days before J starts 1st grade and will be going to school for 6 1/2 hours!!  I am so excited for me him!

Over the weekend I made a quick trip to Ikea to do some pricing on closet organizing for a client and do a little shopping for my house.  I also spent some time organizing my boys' playroom, and after I threw away a years worth of Happy Meal toys {what? your kids don't eat happy meals weekly??} I realized I needed some more storage area in there.  I have kept the toys to a minimum {though they don't play with half of them} but I need more storage for board games and books!

I can not remember how I came across the Hyllis shelving unit... Pinterest probably but I wanted to pick up two for the playroom.  Originally I wanted to construct a shelving unit out of pipe and weathered boards, but for now this will have to do.  And at $15 for each they sure will!  I have yet to put it together, but I figure when they are done I can move them into the garage for extra storage!

Here are few examples of how great this unit could be...

I am totally digging the placement behind the bath!  
I will get my put together and share soon!  I feel like when the playroom is organized my kids want to be in there more, and there for I get more uninterrupted time to work!  So this is high on my priority list!

Enjoy your Monday!

Very industrial chic. Congrats on 1st grade! That day is going to totally blow my mind when my daughter reaches that age.

I used two in my living room and I love them (and their price!!)

I was just thinking of this shelving for our powder room! I plan to spray paint it in Metallic gold!

So chic! Looks great silver but would be fabulous gold or black too!
