Like all moms, I wear a cape under my everyday clothes. (Didn’t you know that’s where the post-baby fluff came from?) If I had a super power, it would be making things disappear, as in, storing things in plain sight.
Update: We are giving away up to 4 pieces of quality SmartStuff4Kids furniture to one lucky winner. Two additional winners will win customized space plans for their child’s room. SmartStuff Furrniture Contest ends July 17, 2016. Enter here. Keep reading to see more about why this furniture has super powers.
That’s probably why I love my daughter’s new bedroom furniture so much. It does the same thing, with tons of super-power hiding spots. Full disclosure, I was compensated by SmartStuff Furniture, but just wait until you see what it can do!
SmartStuff for kids is brilliant when it comes to stowing her stuff. Usually beds either have a big open space underneath or, if you are lucky, some skinny little drawers where a blanket might or might not fit.This Bellamy style has a huge drawer in the center with enough room for a mess of stuffies, and still plenty of room on the adjustable shelves on either side for books and Legos.
If that memory blanket at the end of the bed is catching your eye, check out the details here.
The dresser is one of my two favorite pieces. Self-closing drawers are a good start for super powers. But then, push gently on the left side, and you reveal a full-length mirror.
The right side of this dresser cleverly hides hanging jewelry hooks on a velvet background. If you like this idea, you can make a similar jewelry frame organizer for yourself.
There is also a velvet lined jewelry tray in the top drawer. My little one can’t quite reach yet, but I’m able to stash some things there for her.
SmartStuff doesn’t even know this yet, but I’m going to suggest to them that they market the bottom drawer as an American Girl condo. My kiddo loves that the drawer is just the right size for her AG to sleep in, including her special suitcase. I love that these things have a home, and they aren’t on the floor.
Of course, all the drawers, including the pajama drawer, stay more organized with the removable middle insert. Genius.
This pretty desk is really a treasure. You can see the pretty details on the legs better here. It comes with three drawers that I can imagine storing tons of useful things as she gets older, and a nicely sized shelf for display. What’s really great, though, are the electrical outlets that are front and center, currently just under the jewelry box in the center. There’s no having to dig under and behind the furniture or trying to hide cords, which isn’t really a big deal when you are in the single digit age bracket, but still, nice.
Can you spot the last super power hiding place? I honestly want to kiss whoever came up with this idea, and the corporate suit who said, Sure, let’s keep that in the design. Because this couple of inches hidden under the chair seat is perfect for little girl treasures.
Just when you thought you’d found everything, even the Bellamy headboard hides a secret. The pink panel behind the lattice patterned front can be reversed to show grey. Or, maybe someday we’ll paint that back panel a funky color, when she’s in her artsy teen phase.
All of the SmartStuff furniture comes with these little hidden gems, or super power enhancers, as I like to think of them. It’s worth looking into the rest of the lines if your little sidekick needs new furniture, or their own super-power.
