Hello Everybody! Since buying our house over a year ago, most of the rooms have already changed a bit...for the better ;) We've discovered that some things need to be moved, used, filled, or simply out of the house.
The playroom is no exception. Especially after living down here for a month due to our dishwasher flooding (and hence new main level floors!), I knew that some things weren't functioning as well as they could for the kiddos.
At first, the two expedit shelves on the left of the fireplace were separated one on each side. Would have been great if the girls were using them as reading benches, but their tops just ended up catching large toys and taking up too much space. Hence, the new layout which is so much more useful for them!
The big TV is wonderful in here for the occasional viewing of Paw Patrol. We aren't huge TV people, so we don't have one on our main floor. But, this is great when Mama needs a break in her nearby scrapbooking room!
The IKEA RUG has been a blast to use as a colour learning toy - we often make up twister-like games with it.
I absolutely LOVE this art that I got here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/thewheatfield?ref=l2-shopheader-name
Katie Daisy is the Oregonian artist, and this colourful work completes this room!
I bought a bunch of cheap second hand frames (and two open ones from Micheal's), painted them with acylic paints I had laying around and strung art across them...voila! An art wall :)
These curtains were originally duvet covers from Ikea...so I got 6 panels of fabric for only $45! Woo hoo! Thanks to a friend who helped when my machine made me ANGRY ;) I still hate sewing...
Organized the many bins with pictures of what's inside and letter stickers...easy and hopefully helpful to my pre-literate children.
Lastly, a few of the reading nook area - it's a bit messy right now as the girls' have used the chair for a fort, and there's a pile of tiles that are about to be installed in my husband's office...but, ya know I would never get things photographed "perfectly" around here!
These letters are carved from books! HAD TO HAVE!
Thanks for looking friends! Hopefully your kiddos will come over and play with us sometime ;)
