I've got two design finds that will turn a child's room from drab to ship shape. I spotted this Guidecraft Pirate Treasure Chest at a trade show this year. When you pair it with my other suggestions you're well on your way to keeping the little captains in your family happy.
The toy chest ($138.95) is a great storage solution and all you'll need to do is buy some navy striped sheets for the crib or bed and you've got a fun themed room that won't cost you a fortune. This chest/toy box features a spacious interior with dividers, safety lid supports, and cut-outs to prevent finger pinching (measures 33.5"W x 20"D x 20" H).
For a slightly sophisticated touch, I found this Broze Porthole Mirror at www.givewink.com. Measuring 20 inches, this solid cast bronze mirror ($200) is a classic. Plus you'll feel good about your purchase, with every $100 that is spent online at www.givewink.com, it enables an underprivileged child in South America to get a free eye exam and glasses, if needed. Design finds #40 and #39.
