Thank you! I got that from Pottery Barn Kids, actually! I don't see that same one anymore on their website but this one is similar: http://www.potterybarnkids.com/produ...ey=cstoorg%7Ck

What a fun and beautiful room! I think it's great! My suggestion would be to paint the walls, if you can to a warm spongie color.

OMG dear family friends giifted us with playstands from Willowtree for my birthday!!!
Here are some pics of my girls playing this morning
ETA: the first pictures (the ones before the playstand ones) are at a local Waldorf toystore (Kinderhaus Toys, for anyone in SE Virginia) making felt easter eggs for Spring. The dark haired lady is not me, but the owner of the store.

LOL, too funny! I haven't been able to go to a circle-time yet because of my work schedule, but starting this summer we'll be able to Hooray!!
Thus far, aside from going in and playing after Fiona's ballet class (she goes to EVSPA and I'll start teaching there this summer), we've only been to a few of the classes and festivals. She does a great job with those!

Small world!

Here is our Playroom
We don't have any plastic, but not everything is "open ended" like the firetruck and farm. I try. This summer we are going to lazure the walls and take out the wool rug and replace it with an aplaca rug. We used to have a big flower alpaca rug but it got washed and ruined. Right not its a bit girly and loud but we will improve. Any tips or suggestions on our playroom?

I just saw the post about wide pine flooring- I always wanted to do that- and have since moved into an antique house with them. But, you could always just paint the subflooring- think of the amazing things you could do!!!!

To the OP - I love your playroom! That playstand playsilk is great - did you make it yourself? I also really love the house thing with all the playsilks clipped to it. What a fantastic idea! I know my girls would love something like that.
OMG - I love this playroom! Can I come over and play? :

Very cute! I love it!

Is it strange that I'm really wanting to create a playroom now even though I don't have any children yet?

This reminds me of the first time my SIL visited a waldorf kindergarten/preschool space. He said to my daughter: "I just want to sit down and start playing!" They were, at that point, several years away from having their first child

I want to put wide plank pine flooring down but have no idea the cost, or how much this will set us back. I think though for now if I just take a look at all of your wonderful photos then my mind will start turning

Thanks for the sharing of your personal photos of the playroom setup.
Don't know if anyone has replied to this yet, but depending on where you live, you can get salvaged flooring from old houses that are being torn down, or barn boards. Check ebay too...you'd be surprised!

Check online for Freecycle groups, which I think are nationwide. People post stuff they want to give away and other people post stuff they are looking for. I just unloaded a humidifier I no longer needed and just listed several other items I'm trying to clear out as I get ready to move.
