Before and After: Playroom

Sad blurry photos curtsey of Jon’s old phone. (I had the camera in UT.)

Jon and I went to Ikea and bought some fun stuff to add color, and organization to the playroom. Kaylee was in her ORANGE phase. When we found this cute orange desk we didn’t hesitate to bring it home.

070The opposite side of the room is the “class room” for joy school.

Under the window is Pinto’s usual home.

It’s a small “class room” for small little people, but it works.

What I love most about the space is that I can be in the living room or kitchen, and still be right with the children. They are not in another room in another part of the house. It makes refereeing the inevitable disputes easier.
