Not 100% done - but usable! I'd say we're about 95% complete - just need a few finishing touches on the walls, a little electrical work and I need one more bookshelf.
We hung up the Elfa shelves - right now I'm using them as storage for all the "older" toys and games. We hung a few Ikea shelves underneath to house some odds and ends.
Matthew loves his little desk. I think Yo Gabba Gabba was on when I took this picture.
Here's a better action shot of the boy as a young artist! He really loves to color, so I'm glad he has his own coloring station.
Matt hung the TV on the wall - he still has to move the electrical outlet to behind the TV (to hide the wires and keep Ish out of trouble). In case you are wondering, I was watching The Worlds Largest Rice Krispie Treat on TLC. That's right - a whole hour of watching a town go for the world record.
The Ikea storage units are working out great.
And I finally put together a track for Ish's trains. Sure, it's a boring circle-ly track, but I have no track building skills and Ish doesn't know any better!
I organized all the kitchen stuff - food and utensils have there own bins. And how cool is this blue wooden stove??!! We found that in the trash - yes, the TRASH! Someone threw this out. My dad cleaned it up and added a few knobs and VOILA - treasure.
Another set of toy bins (a tag sale steal) keep all the Bob the Builder trucks, foam blocks and random Little People things off the floor. The book shelf is a tad small for our needs (I want to replace it with a bigger one eventually). The giraffe was a gift from a good friend - Ish likes to hug it.
And my solution for the "wasted space" in front of the storage opening was a suggestion from a good friend - movable storage! These neat little bins have wheels and are a good size for random trucks/toys.
This weekend we're going to hang pictures and finish the TV work.
It feels good to be almost done. Ish LOVES LOVES LOVES his playroom - I'm so glad we have been able to create this space for him.
