Welcome to the play room/school room!
What I really love about this room is the way I've finally gotten all of the children's books in one spot. I am working hard to foster a love for reading in my children and I can think of no better way than to surround them with great books.Even before we had children I was collecting favorites from our childhood to save. Series like Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden, The Bobbsey Twins, Brains Benton...the list goes on and on.
This room is where we plan to do school when we start back up in the fall. I've picked up these desks here and there and have plans to paint them. I just can't decide on a color. So leave me a comment if you have a thought on that!
This bench/chest was my toy chest when I was little. My dad built it for me and I still love it! It's very versitale and I've used it for all sorts of things. It's getting back to its roots though and is housing toys once again.Some of those toys are a very random collection of puppets. Do you like puppets? Our kiddos do and Vince is actually pretty great at doing voices for them, too. A couple of Christmases ago he built them their very own puppet theater. For the occasional performance, you know...
Just above the puppet theater is a wall-mounted tv for the kiddos to watch their videos on. Can you tell we are into space-saving ideas around here?!
The last feature of this room is the closet. I put a bookcase inside it and have it stuffed full of games of all kinds. This is definitely a room that we will be using a lot. It's a small space, but it's being used well.
Thanks for dropping by!
