If I had a dollar for every stuffed animal in my house, I would have enough money to buy at least 100 more stuffed animals! But seriously, my three
kids have definitely collected quite a few stuffed animals during their young lives. They even had several stuffed animals before they were born that were given as gifts or used as decorations for their nurseries. Early on, I realized that these “plush invaders” were going to need some sort of storage solution.
My son’s room is done in a western theme so I thought it would be neat to make a “corral” for all of his animals. His room has a nook due to the dormer window on our house, so I decided to utilize that space for the corral. My husband built a swinging barn-style door to close in the nook. I made a personalized sign in western-style lettering to hang above the corral. This system has worked out wonderfully because it gives my son easy access to his stuffed animals, makes it easy for him to put them away, and hides them nicely at the same time! I wanted to share this idea with you in case your home has also been invaded by these plush creatures. Here are the directions on how I made the corral sign.
