I talked in my previous post about the importance of finding a house that had space for a playroom. The ability to separate the living room from the playroom was a game changer for our family. Gone are the days of kids toys being stored in every corner of our living room. The kids still enjoy hanging out in our family living space but they also have their own space to escape to now.
Books, board games and art supplies in mass. And our newly finished display of kids art to the left (which you can read about here).
We have a lot of art supplies and kids books. So many books that some are still out in the garage. It was mission critical we have a shelving space large enough to incorporate it all. As I look back now, I have no earthly idea how we fit this all in our previous 1500 square foot home.
Storage buckets hold trains, balls and superhero toys. This kids sized farmhouse table (a big favorite) was purchased from Hayneedle for homework and art time. An old wooden toy truck is used to hold crayons.
More kids art sprinkles the walls. These were paintings done by my oldest when he was one-year old (finger painting of course).
Colorful knick-knacks sprinkle the mantel. The more color the better in this room. I wanted the kids to feel like it was their space to create, rest, play, veg out in.
More colorful knick-knacks and art we've picked up over the years as a family.
