I’m excited to give you a tour of our new playroom today! It’s finally finished! Hooray for organizing all the kid clutter!
We moved in two weeks ago and the new house has a loft upstairs we are now using as a playroom.
Here’s what it looked like up until last Saturday. I so dislike moving because it forces you to deal with all the clutter…and we hadn’t dealt with all the toys my kids have accumulated in a long while.
But about 10 hours later it look like this! Man…these tiny people sure do collect “stuff” so quickly don’t they! lol We sorted through every single toy, book, game, and puzzle we had. It was painful, but worth it. We have a huge box for donation and garage sale now.
Here are some of the fun details of our new space!
In anticipation of this move I visited Ikea in Tempe, AZ knowing I would not have one in Fresno.
I’ve always wanted this hanging organizational tool so I grabbed two. It comes with a long wire so you can decide how long it needs to be. Then you just use these clips to hang whatever you’d like. I LOVE the artwork displayed like this!!
We are using our kids table up here perfect for a little art area.
The four tiered toy organizer and bins was a great Goodwill find at $20. It works perfect for all the small toys. Our Red Envelope growth chart works awesome in here. We’ve had it forever and never had space for it
I love these inexpensive plastic hanging baskets from Ikea and wish I bought more. It makes a perfect home for all the coloring books… I had to add a chalkboard adhesive to the wall
These little chalkboard label buckets are in the dollar bins at Target. I hung them with shower curtain hangers and a small towel rod.
These bookcases used to be in my son’s room in our old house and were originally left over from previous tenants in our Vegas house who no longer wanted them, So free score…
Remember this sign I made for Easter?
It was collecting dust in the garage so I painted a sign for the playroom!
I printed out letters from PicMonkey and then used the pencil transfer method to outline the letters in pencil on the board and then painted them. The imagine I just did freehand…
I think it looks pretty fab with our Red Envelope canvas hand and footprint art. (Which was a nice gift from my dad.)
How fun would that be to give a basket of blank canvases and paint for a family to make their own?!) I bet just going to the craft store and putting it all together would be way less than Red Envelope…
Ahhh see all those books and games all together and organized….happiness
Here’s the toy box we refinished and painted last year and two big baskets from Goodwill.
And finally the domestic area
So this space was a ton of work mostly because we had not purged and organized any of it in a while, but I really hope to keep up with it. Plus our kids now know where everything goes so, clean up time should be easier…hopefully! Do you find it difficult to control toy and kid clutter?
