nursery storage items

This week is deadline week for real living and so my eyes are bleary with all the work that has to be done. So I apologise for the sporadic posts this week. But I thought I'd share some images I love. These were posted on The Scoop, which had used the images from Ohdeedoh - such is the circulatory world of blogland. My secret source, real living deputy art director Renae Lovett, passed them on after I sent out a plea to my colleagues: help, I need a nappy bin that doesn't look like a nappy bin for the nursery. I don't know if you've ever looked at nappy bins, but let me tell you - they're white, plastic and very ugly - not at all in keeping with the rest of the room's vibe. I wanted something stylish that could be put to other purposes as the baby grew. I didn't mind if I had to put a ugly bin inside - I just didn't want it to go on show. Anyway, Renae found these ones and now I'm just working out a way to create my own. These were made from old drums. Does anyone have any suggestions of what materials I could use?

These are really clever and look great...not sure what else to suggest...I just threw my babies nappies straight in the bin...

What about old hat boxes? Or even new ones... You could line insides with plastic (somehow!) so they can wipe down easily? And they'd look cool later as storage. Am trying to remember where I saw some recently - will have a think and let you know x

Thanks, girls. Think I'm probably getting a little over-excited about the whole thing but I just fell in love with the pics.

As a mother of 3 I have to say that I think you'd be better off not having a nappy bin at all...Much easier (and better smelling) to just throw the nappy in your
own rubbish bin. I had one with my first son, but after the second and now third, I find that they really aren't that useful and you'd be better without them. Not to say, of course, that you can't store something else in a beautiful box!
Good luck with the impending birth, by the way! (when are you due?)

Hi Marianne, Looks like the jury is in agreement - no nappy bin. So maybe I might create something like this for storage. I definitely don't want to buy anything that's not absolutely necessary. So far all I've bought for the nursery is a cot! Getting a pram soon. But besides my beautiful Bholu cot sheet set, that's about it.
