Recently an expectant couple came over to our house and saw the overwhelming amount of toys that have taken over our living room. The dad-to-be looked at the pregnant wife and asked, "Is this what our house is going to look like?"

So when I saw this sleek storage drum ($299), I drooled at the idea of having one of these beauties to mask the playground that our place has become.
Spacious and useful as a storage bin, the lid also has one side that is made of chalkboard material, which can make it a novelty for children, too. And when your friends come over for wine, just flip it over and have the wooden part add some grown–up pizzazz.
