Playroom: Toy Storage and Kitchen

The Playroom

May 29, 2013 Sarah Coggins

Our playroom has been a work in progress for the last 6+ months, but finally feels almost complete. It’s the first room off the foyer when you enter the house. Originally intended as a living room. I certainly didn’t want a formal playroom, but we did want a space that would be easy to tidy up since it’s so visible.

Here’s a photo tour of our playroom …

Playroom: Toy Storage and Kitchen
Lots of storage space with the Expedit!
Playroom: Art Storage
Fun artsy decor from an old ad magazine & preschool crafts
Playroom: Train Table, Easel, and Dress Up
Lots of natural lighting during the day
Playroom: Train Table
Train table “relove” (a bargain consignment find)
Playroom: Dress Up and Easel
Costume & drawing area
Playroom: Ikea Malin Trad Shade
A fun new fixture for extra light in the evening

    I highly recommend the book What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage for any woman of faith who has suffered a miscarriage or anyone wanting to gain insight to help comfort a spouse, friend, sister, daughter, etc.
