Trying to balance baby proofing and style have been a little bit of a challenge now that Parker has gone mobile. I don’t mind having a house full of toys but prefer to find appealing ways to organize everything.
This is what we started with. I was so excited about the project I didn’t think to take a before picture so this is all I have. This entertainment center was bulking, dark and fully exposed to toddler shenanigans.
I had my heart set on a LIATORP Sideboard but at $350 it just wasn’t in the budget. We decided to do a walk through of IKEA and decided on a BESTA set that ended up being around $180 with all of the parts. On our way out, we stopped by the scratch n’ dent section and BAM there it was, a smaller BESTA set for only $60. There was a cabinet and drawer on the left and glass enclosed cabinet on the right. It was perfect and I was simply giddy! Since we had a $35 gift certificate we also splurged on a cute decorative VIDJA table lamp. Overall this upgrade was $145, well worth keeping our electronics safe from curious little hands!
