I started with these Threshold cubbies from Target. Target is smart. They had a big storage sale after Christmas because they knew all of us mamas were looking for a way to store all of our new toys that Santa brought. I bought these two cubbies (the 9 cube and 2 cube) and pushed them together then just filled them up with what we had laying around. The wicker bins I already had (from Target) and the blue bins are from Land of Nod that I've had for a while.
I love the cute little Pillowfort line at Target. It fits this space perfectly and it's such a great price. I got a few pieces of art and the animal heads and suddenly this space became so much more fun! I also added a magnet board over Campbell's Ikea play table and he's having a lot of fun with that! The table was previously crammed in the corner where the tee pee is now and it's so funny because Campbell never used it much and now he uses his table almost the entire time he's in the playroom now. I think a lot of the problem is that I had toys sitting on it (because I didn't have anywhere else to put them) but now that it's free of clutter, he can sit there and work puzzles or build things and it's great!
Campbell got a train table for Christmas and he loves it but it posed a problem because it's a big toy and we needed to find a good spot for it. Hence, one of the reasons I needed to make over this playroom. It now has a great spot and I found the railroad crossing sign at Hobby Lobby which I think goes perfectly above it!
So there's our little playroom makeover. Campbell absolutely loves it. You'd think he had a brand new playroom full of new toys. I think he loves it so much because it's more organized so he can see all his toys better. Everything isn't crammed together and he has a better space to play with it all. We used to spend the first two hours of our mornings downstairs just laying around but now he wants to go straight to his playroom to play. I'm so glad he does! I'm enjoying it so much more myself. I used to get depressed in this room but now I love it! I'm glad I finally did something to spruce this space up and the best part is it didn't cost a lot of money. Thanks Target!
