[so cheap, so easy]: Toy Car Display

Have I ever told you how sorry I feel for myself that I don't live near an Ikea? If not: I feel very sorry for myself, because I don't live near an Ikea. In fact, I found a great plot of land just a couple of miles from my house that would be the perfect location. I'm just sayin'.

I saw this idea on style files. This is a magnetic knife rack from Ikea. (I'm sure you can find them elsewhere, but I'm still bitter.) If I had a little boy, I would be all over this. This is fabulous in so many ways. It's organized, it's functional, and it looks great. What else do you need?

  6. This is SUCH a great idea. I would need about 400 of those, though. We are quickly outgrowing the car bin, though, so this could be for overflow. And I do live near IKEA... sorry about that.

    Thanks for swinging by my blog today!!
