If you are a mom I’m sure you have a million toy cars floating around your house. I have a great idea for repurposed toy car storage that will keep them off the floor but within easy reach of little hands.
I found an old mechanics bolt storage tray at an antique fair and thought it may be the perfect place to keep all those cars together in a way that my son could see them and know which ones he wanted to play with. Who am I kidding? They all just come flying off the shelf but whatever!
The tray already had great color and wear and tear which made it all that much more inviting. All I had to do was wash it and drill a few holes through the back so I could get some screws through it.
I found two studs to drill into and I would recommend that. You don’t want a hunk of metal coming down on your little one.
I think it is a great industrial piece. I love the rusty spots too and everyone has their tetanus shot so we are good. Ha!….I’m kinda serious.
