My Children Adore Plush Toys. They have A. LOT. OF. STUFFED. ANIMALS. They loved playing with them so I can't complain too much. At times the huge bins full of them drive me nuts. They take up huge amounts of floor space! I am not really a huge fan of those nets you can buy for the ceiling. I mean, honestly what kid can reach that? what is the point really? If we are storing plush by lining our ceilings they really should be out of our homes, right?
In my oldest daughter's room my husband came up with the idea of fashioning a hammock to tie off the end of her loft bed. Did I tell you I am married to an organizational genius? yep. He's amazing, he's also a good cook, an kick ass artist...fun Daddy...so happy he's my wonderful Hubby.
You can add one of these to a regular bed, just needs to be one with a foot board.
I decided to whip up this hammock today. And I did in literally 10 minutes. here's How I did it:
- 1 Throw blanket
- 6 pieces of gross grain ribbon cut so you have enough to tie around the end of your bed rails. I used 10" pieces.
- bed with foot board
- burn the edges of your ribbon so they do not fray.
- fold ribbon in half and sew one piece to each corner of the blanket
- use the last two pieces of ribbon in the center of each long side of your blanket.
- Tie hammock to your bed and fill.
- Easy & now that huge bin is off the floor!
