FINALLY my waldorf playroom pics - Page 10

post #181 of 639
Beautiful rooms everyone! Lucky kiddos you gus have!
Unfortunately here where we live, space is at a premium and I don't know anyone with an extra room for a playroom. We have things in my daughter's bedroom and also in the livingroom. We are re-doing the livingroom and sectioning off an area where she will have her own personal space, I'll post a picture when that's done.

The reason I am actually posting is to comment to those considering wood and thinking of the cost, have you looked into bamboo at all? That's what we have and it was significantly cheaper than wood. It looks the same as other hardwood floors, is harder than most and environmentaly significantly better.
Just a thought!

We have a small 3 bedroom home. They are all fairly small rooms, but we decided to keep all three girls to sleep in one bedroom, and convert the other room into a play room. They are pretty young yet, and don't have the need for privacy just yet, and I figured since mostly they just used the bedroom to sleep in at this point, I used the other room as a play room. When we had toys in the bedroom, inevitably most things ended up under the beds, which drove me nuts.

To make it work, though we had to get a bunk bed (so we have a twin size bunk bed and another twin bed), but so far, we have no complaints. Now when they get older, I'm sure they will want more personal space, but for now, it's working out okay.

I decided to make 1 room a playroom, especially since I watch another child on Mondays. So, they have the space in there, rather than all over the house or in the girls room (that's off limits to play when he comes over).

Now, the girls still have a train table in the family room we use as a coffee table, and they also have the 9-cube cubby with art supplies/educational type things in it. And the dining room is their art table and montessori activity table. But essentially, the family room is more adult space, though we allow toys to migrate there. They just aren't stored in the family room anymore.

And, from watching the extra child on Mondays, all my babysitting money would go to purchasing nicer toys and montessori type things for the kids. So it works out pretty well.

AFA as bamboo floors, I forgot about that. I need to do some research as to where.

Right now our priority is cleaning out our garage, though....

We are planning on doing bamboo floors, as well. But even those are out of our price range right now. Costco is the cheapest from what I understand.

...what a fun and inspiring room! I am a grandma of a 6 and 10 year old and one on the way. I like to watch and listen and keep in touch with moms raising our newest generation. It makes me a better grandma and mother/mother in law, and artist.
Hope to see more of you around. Write anytime.
I LOVE the way the clouds/grass silk works for you...I can see that a longer silk with more sky would work quite well. Is is common to leave the shelves open like yours or more common to have them enclosed like the pict with the rainbow silk?

That is an awesome playroom!!!! I would have loved that when I was a kid!! Great job

CG - that is lovely! I have to admit, though, that one of my first reactions is that my kids would rip around and mess it up in 5 minutes, and that it would take about one hour to re-arrange it. I hope that your experience has been better than my imaginings!

Beautiful!!! Slightly OT, and I hope you don't mind me asking: Does your DD love that dollhouse? I'm thinking of getting it for DD's 3rd birthday - I love how open and 3-D it is.

It looks great in your pictures!! Nothing gets used for the original purpose around here, so I can only imagine what my DD would put in there

My second DD is due 2 weeks before DD1's birthday, so I'm hoping maybe the house will distract her a bit too
