STYLISH, AFFORDABLE WAY TO STORE TOY CARS

Today’s DIY is all about finding stylish ways to display and contain toy cars. My son’s love of cars was revived last month when we introduced him to the latest Fast & Furious™ movie. So, of course, he was thrilled when he discovered toy replicas of Dom Toretto’s car and the climax scene of the movie. However, we had reached capacity on car storage in casa de Mangold. Maxed. Out.
As you know from prior posts, I’ve already had to get creative with Dub’s toy car storage.
So, I came up with another super easy DIY to contain his new treasures. We sifted through his favorite vintage luxury sports and muscle cars, handed down from his dad, and selected the coolest cars in the worst condition (so we wouldn’t feel too guilty about what we planned to do next!). Then, I dug up a couple of Mason jars (wide mouthed worked best!).
I spray painted the lids and cars in silver metallic spray paint.
Since these vintage cars have a metal frame, I glued a magnet to the lid so they can be easily removed and reattached.
Then, I filled them up with his favorite cars. Simple, right?
I’m happy because it totally works with his room decor.
He’s happy because he gets to display and enjoy his cars when they’re not in use.
Well, okay. Not really. He’s just happy that he gets to recreate those “epic” scenes from the movie, while recording it all with the filmmaker app that complements these new sets.
If you have a little car lover in your home, you’ll probably need a similar solution to tame the toys. Luckily, this one is about as easy and inexpensive as it gets.
You can find the complete line of Fast & Furious toys at Walmart stores now, just in time for the July 11 release of F8 on DVD. In the meantime, check out more car-loving tutorials and inspiration here!
