CREATING STORAGE WITH MOCKA

CREATING STORAGE WITH MOCKA | OUR URBAN BOX

The never ending problem of not enough storage! Does it drive you crazy? Drives me batty!! The kids rooms are in desperate need of more storage but I don’t want to spend lots of money at the moment solving the storage dilemma as we are building soon. So I am always on the hunt for affordable but stylish storage solutions. 

The team at Mocka kindly sent me some of their new shadow box houses to review a few weeks ago. I was so impressed with the quality I had to share them with you. I hopped over to Mocka for another look around to see what else I could use to solve my storage problem. Mocka’s product range of contemporary furniture, toys and furnishings covers all age ranges from baby to adult. Not only are the products stylish and practical, they are affordable.

Being a renter, I didn’t want to use the provided screws to hang the shadow boxes as I would damage the walls. The shadow boxes come in a set of three (houses or cubes) and they are fairly light. So I used the Command Hanging Strips – they will soon become your best friend. I chose to hang the smaller two shadow boxes to the wall.

When hung to the wall, the boxes are the perfect size to display all those smaller, cherished toys like Sonny Angels and Maileg. The command strips worked perfectly and have done the job well. The boxes are secure and I don’t think they will fall.

The natural timber outside works well with any modern interior and you can choose from either white or black. I sat the larger house on her bookshelf. I wasn’t too sure if the command strips would work at the time, but in hindsight I think they would. I might still hang it on the wall.

In this one I placed Miss 4’s ice cream lip glosses and her favourite Maileg mouse “Maisie” so that she could easily reach them. A girl has got to have her gloss ready when she needs it!.

Check out these other Mocka products that are going straight onto my wishlist!

The Jimmy Stand – I have one of these and I ADORE it!! I could actually do with about another 3 of these. Stay tuned for a post about this versatile item soon!

Brooklyn Midi Drawers – love the natural pine and white compact storage solution for smaller spaces.

Mocka Stacka Boxes – Fun colours, stackable and affordable! 3 big ticks from me. I think this would work well in wardrobes and to create storage under beds (if you have the room).
