I was always a crafty kind of kid, and I’d really like to instill the same love of making things in my kids. Recently, I realized we just weren’t doing enough of the crafty stuff I loved as a child. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that all of their art supplies were packed up in a tub, on a shelf too high for them to reach, you think?
I wanted a solution that put things at their fingertips, ready to be used at a moment’s notice but still keep everything fairly neat. Enter Urbio, the cool magnetic storage system that can be used for nearly everything you can think of—from art supplies to plants!
It’s a simple system of wall plates and containers that attach to the plates magnetically. You can rearrange the containers on the plates as needed.
I added the Happy Family—what we’re giving away today (details below!)—to my kids’ work area, and I feel better with the space already. Along with an inexpensive set of drawers that disguises some of the messier craft supplies, I can keep the tools my kids use often ready to use in the Urbio.
Happy Family by Urbio, Drawers from Michael’s, Artwork: Bees Knees Print from Minted, Free Printable from Yellow Magnolia, Chairs from PBK, Table homemade, Bunny Clock from Urban Outfitters (no longer available)
Tip: In the “wide mouth” section, I added a layer of dry beans to help the smaller craft supplies stand upright.
You can buy a kit, like the Happy Family or the Big Happy Family, or mix and match the wall plates and containers a la carte depending on your needs.
Urbio began as an urban garden solution. You can see examples of cool wall gardens created by users in their online gallery. I can imagine so many uses for Urbio. I would love to add one to my kitchen, and, of course, I thought of diaper organization for our Project Nursery readers. How would you use it?
