Our playroom serves a number of purposes: school room, playroom, toy storage, game storage. It really is the center for all things kids. I really wanted a room that inspired learning and made you feel bright and welcome. I had zero storage so I used a shelf from Ikea and filled it with labeled baskets and the side pieces from our entertainment piece.

I divided the space into a sitting area to play with toys and a school area to sit and learn.
Most of the time it is one huge pile of toys and things that I should totally just throw away. But it is a fun place for the kids to just be kids and it is upstairs so I can hide it all pretty well.

That valance up there, is a raw piece of fabric push-pinned into the wall, Classy, I know, but it works and I don't have the energy right now to do much else to it...
