nursery storage items

This week is deadline week for real living and so my eyes are bleary with all the work that has to be done. So I apologise for the sporadic posts this week. But I thought I'd share some images I love. These were posted on The Scoop, which had used the images from Ohdeedoh - such is the circulatory world of blogland. My secret source, real living deputy art director Renae Lovett, passed them on after I sent out a plea to my colleagues: help, I need a nappy bin that doesn't look like a nappy bin for the nursery. I don't know if you've ever looked at nappy bins, but let me tell you - they're white, plastic and very ugly - not at all in keeping with the rest of the room's vibe. I wanted something stylish that could be put to other purposes as the baby grew. I didn't mind if I had to put a ugly bin inside - I just didn't want it to go on show. Anyway, Renae found these ones and now I'm just working out a way to create my own. These were made from old drums. Does anyone have any suggestions of what materials I could use?
