I'm stoked to show you all. After living in a 4 room rental it's a blessing to have so much space a playroom/preschool room is amazing. I am extremely grateful. When we were house hunting I made it a point to have a play room for all that play stuff. One of the reasons we chose this house the boycave close to the main house so I can supervise while in the kitchen but still hidden enough that we can ignore the toy mess if we want. I can just toss toys around the corner and deal with it later when the boys are available to help with the clean up. Lets face it not all the toys get picked up right after use, they should but don't. Toys get discarded for something shiny. Crap happens, maybe I need to run to the store, then we have dinner, and BAM it's bedtime and the toys are still out. It's so nice to not have to look at it when I'm relaxing with my hubby. You know we look forward to that magical part of the day called bedtime. Bliss. I'm not picking up for the boys when they can help me do it first thing in the morning.
I' m keeping it real and showing you our boycave on an average day. Toys on the floor and books escaping the bookcase. This is how we live daily. No my school room probably won't go viral on Printerest. Its not perfect with matching bins and furniture. I don't care. I'm still proud of it it's well used and real.
Whew that was a lot. Here is our Dress up locker and art supplies. I used a cheap window curtain rod like this. To hang in between the cabinet. Hidden under the clothes is a big blue bin of dress up accessories. The art supplies are up high.
Who doesn't like toy storage. The 9 cube is from target. I think everyone with kids has the same somewhere in their home. The storage system on the right has cars toys in the bottom tubs and a book sling on the top. I use the sling to store our library books and the books we have that relate to our theme of the month.
Next up we have the storage area. The work wall is for stuff we make not related to our theme. the wall adjacent is our ABC word wall. Puzzles are stored up on the counter allong with supplies. Our Gerbils home is here also. The cabinets hold TONS of toys and games.
Next to the dress up cabinet we have our reading area. A small pocket chart and our themed wall. Musical instruments or in a green bin.
Lastly we have our blue table with stuffed animals underneath. The folding chairs are stored next to it to save room. An easel with dry erase crayons. and some white boards.
What do you think? I love it. It suits my family perfectly.
