Katy's Playroom

Bookshelves and Katy's "Dining Area"

Bench and "Parking Lot"

As I mentioned in a previous post, we said good-bye to the dining room and hello to Katy's Playroom, this past weekend. Daddy was hard at work putting together shelves and I went to work labeling and organizing the umpteen many toys and books that our toddler has somehow managed to amass (one word- GRANDPARENTS! ;-P) in nineteen short months (and it's not even Christmas or birthday, yet!).

While we gave up the dining room table and traded it out for a smaller table in the kitchen, I like this new, more organized look. This new playroom keeps the toys from migrating into either the kitchen or the living room and makes it easier to find specific toys and/or books (and keeps my sanity, just a little bit!).

Since the playroom is on the first floor and very visible, the room had to still look somewhat put together (hazard of the used-to-be interior design profession). I think the baskets and darker wood help make the room still look appropriate for the space, yet casual and family-friendly. Katy gets her toys and we get some organization. Win-win, if you ask me!

BTW, I used to create the bin labels. I loved that you could customize the words and have a picture on the label.
