A solution to the Boy's never-ending toys

I've made several of Ana's plans with success, so when my toddler's toys started overflowing his toy box I came here for a good shelving solution. Unfortunately, I have a tiny house and I didn't find anything that was perfect, so I downloaded sketchup and made my own plan. This, based on a land of nod piece and the Banker's Bookcase techniques, is the result.

I love it! It reminds me of the bookcases we used to have in the nursery school classrooms at my church as a kid, except much prettier. You did a really great job, and I love the doors to help hide some of the toys!
