We have been working on this project for a few months. This was a room on the first floor that was essentially underused and I imagined it would be a perfect place to store all of the children's toys and to hang their coats. Since we live in an old house there isn't a lot of closet space. We only have one small coat closet on the entire first floor so I keep having to find creative ways to store all of our things! We emptied the room first, painted it a neutral color, and organized all of the toys into categories. When we put them back in to the space we used a designated shelf or bin for each category as you can see from the picture of the bookcase above. For example, one shelf has games another trucks. This makes it easy to clean up since everything now has a specific place. I moved the red frames from my office in there as well to display the children's art work. We put a train table in the corner that besides providing endless entertainment was used as a table to eat dinner on when we had some friends over this past weekend. I'm very happy with the results and, besides finding some decorative things to hang on the walls, it's finished!
I have always believed that some of the best presents come in tiny packages, like my husband's proposal in a fortune cookie! My philosophy is that favors/gifts should be useful or edible and that the attention to detail of the packaging should be as important as the gift inside. I am happy to create personalized favors/gifts for your next event. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
