toy storage bins


I'm working on creating a toy room in my basement. I have an Ikea Expedit bookcase I can use, and I want to find some cool storage bins that could go in the squares to store toys. I'm having trouble finding what I want. I had originally envisioned metal bins, and I'd love for them to look distressed/vintage. Anyone know of a great place to find metal bins? Or any other ideas??

Target used to have metal bins. I am not sure if they still do. But they had a section on the front that you could write on with chalk.

I have an Expedit bookcase in Landon's room. I didn't like the plastic bins that they had at IKEA, but I never did find any metal ones that fit right. I ended up with fabric ones I bought at Target for $9.99 a piece.

Hi !! I have the same shelf in my son's room. I looked high and low for something that fit exactly into the sections. I ended up finding these bins from Target:

(See my review by Sodagirl) They have them for a great price right now! I bought mine about 17 months ago for almost twice the price! Anyway, I don't know if this color or style works for you, but they do fit perfectly!

At the office! Come have a chat with me next time you are in and you can see if you want these.

I would worry about metal since it is for kids....heavy when they pull out. I used the basket ones from Ikea on some shelves and left others open.
