wish I had thought of this when my kids were small. We used kitchen chairs.Using tension rods to make a tent in the hallway for the kids, instead of dragging out all the kitchen chairs. I like this idea!
Paint some wicker baskets (Martha Stewart has fantastic paints at Michaels), flip them upside-down, drill a hole fasten a light through it (great deals at IKEA) you have these! Or you can hang them without the lights!
