Ikea PS Cabinet

Lately we’ve been acquiring a LOT of toys with a LOT of pieces. i.e. legos, puzzles, games etc.  My playroom is usually a little messy and it’s all good but these new additions have been making it almost impossible to even walk around!  I can’t tell you how many legos I’ve stepped on!   I decided what I really needed was some storage with a locking ability.  That way toys could be accessible when needed but when they weren’t getting used they would remain locked away.  Enter the Ikea PS Cabinet.
First of all these are only $99 a piece, secondly they come in a variety of colors and thirdly they lock! Wahoo!! They are the best addition to my basement.
I decided to get two to go side by side.  To style them I picked out some cute pieces from Minted.  I chose Dawdle in a 44 x 44.  I love all the colors in the piece and it works perfectly with the scheme of my playroom.  I love layering art so I also picked out Fleeting in Indigo.
Hallelujah! Who knew playroom storage could make a person so happy.

    This is so cute & perfect for a playroom. I'm just wondering how do you open it w/o handles? Does it stay closed if it's not locked? Wondering how long it would take before I lost the keys 🙂 Thinking of this for my basement now. Thanks.

      Great questions! It just opens with the key as the handle once you stick it in there if that makes sense? So you can't open it without the key and you also have to have the key to close it! It does come with two keys though and maybe you can make a spare?!

    We just bought one in red a couple weeks ago! I hadn't thought of using it for toy lock up though…genius!

    I love locker-style storage units! I am considering them for office storage. As always, beautiful… 🙂

    It's good to know there are some great design schools out there. I think I'm going to need help from them pretty soon. I'm opening up a little diner, pretty soon, and I want to know what they think I can add to it before I open. http://www.clarkeinteriors.com.au/services

    LOVE IT. My kids are getting big enough to climb to the top of their closet so my old system of keeping things out of reach no longer works.
