Our balcony used to have a balinese coffee table made of teak & glass, a sound system and a sofa. Now, we have changed it into a new play area for the kids. Look! Trofast Ikea shelves! We were running out of space for the random toys the kids were accumulating, and these shelves are amazing in helping us to organise stuff and keeping everything neat. I am so pleased we bought them and the kids like them too! Everything is so much neater now.
And as for our balinese coffee table, we have moved that to the living room--which is now an oasis of calm orderliness (because all the toys are now in the balcony! Whoot!)
